• A cracking little album from the 20s

    My partner Jan has a great knack of turning up some wonderful photographs from the past. This time she discovered a small family album from the 1920s among a jumble of clutter on a car boot table, rescuing it for the princely sum of £1.50. Granted, many of the images are poorly composed, sometimes creased or badly faded, but here and there the occasional nugget jumps off the page. It's that never ending fascination with these intimate moments of the lives of unknown people (none of the pictures are captioned) in unknown places from around a century ago that grabs the attention and fires the imagination, prompting so many questions that will never be answered.

    Jan's main reason for buying the album? She spotted a picture of a Scottie dog.

    ... and then we had a closer look at some of the other pictures & sure enough their faithful Scottie features with the family.
