    Week 4 (Jan. 25-31): A Favourite Photograph

    This should be a fun week!
    Tell the story of a favourite photo -- who is in it, when and where was it taken, and why was it taken.
    Remember, it doesn't have to be a sepia-toned Victorian era photo.
    It could be a photo you took last week!

    Week Four: Favourite photograph

    Fairly straightforward detective work about a picture with some guesswork thrown in.

      That's a lovely photo Caroline. A mix of Victorian stiff upper lip and a cheeky smile from Rosa Ellen. I have only just discovered that the heading leads to your posts, durr, so will take a look at the others.

      A bit of a change of families for me this week. I always loved this photo from the moment I discovered it in an old album.

          I enjoyed that story Yummy Mummy, and the assertion that he didn't die young and proof made me smile. I think we probably have all had similar experiences.
          I wonder if his time in the Warwickshire/Evesham area relates to the historical fruit and veg industry of the area, a lifetime of working on the land it would make sense. One of my 2xGreat Grandfather's moved around to where there was work, admittedly in a much smaller area, but often homes were related to work. Anyway that is supposition but Evesham and Kent are still regarded as 'growing' areas.

            thanks for this information. i have no idea if it was linked to fruit and veg or if he was just a general gardener. I know his son-in-law who was a gardener by trade was just that, he cut lawns and trimmed/shaped hedges, planted flowers etc. Yes he had an allotment where he grew veg but his back garden was well manicured. lol.
