Sometimes it's not obvious to me If a photograph is "old". For instance,this week I took Mother-in-Law Jean to a doctors appointment.The surgery is on the street I lived on as a child in Halifax.While waiting for Jean at the doctor's gate i took some photos of Love Lane.To me these are "old photos".They capture my past.As a kid i would escape down this lane to contemplate.In those days there was a Garden Nursery at the beginning of the Lane.It was just beyond the "STOP" sign in the photo.(The owner had a pretty daughter as I remember).The lane is about a mile in distance.It used to be quietly magical open fields....... now it is a fancy housing estate.So it goes.'Still a Cool name though!
read all about........... The Bunny Girls Reunion
This week's Sepia Saturday is around the theme of Scouts& Girl Guides
Old readers of this blog will recall me telling you I used to live in the East End of London.I am much taken with Spitalfields Life. A magical exploration of East End old&new (including many terrific old photographs).This week's photo is from the site.It's entitled The Bunny Girls Reunion. Maybe I met this lass? I remember going to The Playboy Club once in 1971.How/Why they would let a scruffy young hippy in, God alone knows!It was all rather strange & alien to me .It went against my counter-culture philosophy at the time .......but i remember the tails being rather cute & fluffy.!......So It Goes....
