    Some Old Photos

    This weekend my Mumís side of the family are getting together for the 50th anniversary of their arrival in Australia from England. For a bit of fun Iím trying to put together a collage of photos to commemorate the occasion. It been fascinating look through photos that are more than 75 years old. Since you donít often get to look at old photos like these (well I donít anyway) I though some of you might be interested in seeing some of them.

    The first photo Iíve put here is my grandmother (who was born in 1907) as a baby. That makes the photo roughly 95 years old.

    Next we have a couple of photos of Arundel Castle, where my great grandfather was gamekeeper. Lastly Iíve included a photo of Brighton Pier. Those poor pommies. Not only do they not get a decent summer but when they go to the beach thereís no sand!

    These last three photos are from an album of photos which seem to have been taken around 1927/28. Youíve gotta love the fashion back in the 20ís.

    If anyone is interested I can post a few more photos.

    Cheers.

    I love these old shots, they have something nostalgic.
    My dad kept a lot of those old photographs and that has mostly to do with the fact that he came from a family with quite a long rich history; shoe and leather factory for over 220 years. It must be that this is what developed my interest for photography.
    It's quite interesting to see how people lived, how they dressed, how my town has changed and how less hectic life was. The stories behind it make it even more interesting. Colorizing was also done in those days, all by hand, no digital software. Amazing how well most of these photographs survived, some close to 100 years.

    Thanks for sharing these shots with us, I loved looking at them and maybe some of us will appreciate the latest technology a lot more. I hardly doubt it though!
