Vintage Photos

“This is a photo of my Nanny on her first family holiday (not sure exact location, but also in the UK) after the war, in Summer 1946.”

– Rhiannan R.


If you missed my initial post, here are the instructions again.

- The subject line of the email should read “Vintage Photo”

- The photos will only be posted here on the blog, so the file size can be very small (no bigger than 700kb). I DO NOT need hi-res images, they take too long to download.

- Writing a little something about the image you send will make your entry much more interesting for all of us.

- Email your photos to:

    What a beautiful picture… Vintage picture can transmit some kind of energy. Is just imposible not try to guess and wonder how was the life of this woman or whoever appears in a photo of this kind. Is that sense of nostalgic mixed with curiousity and of course some respect to the passing life itself.

    nearly anything done.
