Meet Alex, you’ll find out more about him and his life over the next few weeks.
New Treasures! I recently opened a new bag of old photos to look through and scan and oh my goodness what treasures I found! Every single photo has been written on by Alex, the chap in the above photo here. I love the way he writes of his life and loves, family and friends, all on the back of old photos. It will take me a while to read everything on the backs of the photos, but then I will share more in future Blogs.
I vaguely remember buying the bag full (about 125!) but as often happens I didn’t get a chance to look through them, I just spotted writing & bought the bag, you have to be so quick sometimes at a fleamarket in case someone else beats you to it! The photos span from the 1910’s to the 1930’s. I hope you enjoy looking through and reading this first batch.
The majority of the peple mentioned and photographed here I believe lived in and around the Bristol or Somerset areas.
Could any of these people mentioned be your Ancestors?
Another thing about this collection is that the family surname is the same as a family I have already researched a while ago, that also had links with Somerset. I am wondering, could they be connected? No links so far! But we shall see, I’ve started a tree for this family already.
Watch out for future Blogs about Alex……..
Till next time then……..
