There are big boxes of old photographs in our local antique emporium Snooper's Paradise, and these were amongst those that took my fancy.
It struck me tha I know these people every bit as well as the people in some of my oldest family photographs. Occasionally, I know the people they become, but nothing at all about the thoughts and feelings, loves and longings, they experienced when the photographs were taken. Every picture tells a story and these are no different. There is little of place in these pictures, and not that much about time apart from the clothes and the hairstyles, but there's a lot of character in these images, and I think tha's what drew me to them.
