The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Monochrome Monday - 2nd November

Here we have a really old photo of my grandfather possibly taken any time from 1910 to 1930 - it's so difficult to say when ..

Sorry the quality is so bad.

As you can see he was a printer ..

That's a worthy picture. I wish I had one of my uncle with his sidecar outfit circa 1914. I do have some portraits fron the 1890s.

You're lucky to have such a photo. He was a fine-looking man and probably extremely talented to be able to use such intricate equipment. Great history here. :D

That's a very old photo! And a very nice one.

I like old black and white photos ... Looking at them is like travelling back in time. They always give me a wonderful feeling.
