Breathing new life into lost photographs

Wisteria Cottage, Colemere

Wisteria Cottage Colemere

This small photograph (3.25 x 2.25″) was discovered in a Shropshire antique shop. The back reads ‘Joan’s Grandmother Georgia Smith and daughter Eileen at Wisteria Cottage Colemere’ Colemere is a small village in Shropshire close to my home. Eileen seems to be having fun feeding the birds watched by Georgia. I was unable to trace the car/ number plate. Although very little in the image is in focus I thought it was interesting enough to share with you.

Spot the ball and the man

This photograph (measuring 5.25 x 3.5″) was found in a Shropshire antique shop. The reverse reads ‘You can see me first over the ink dot’. The ink dot is clear enough in the centre of the photograph. I’m not sure of the location although the majority of the  spectators are in uniform and the background looks like a dock so perhaps they are sailors. The ball seems to be in the air above the industrial building towards the centre.
