As much as possible I hope to illustrate the posts on this blog with photographs from family sources. Of course I had some old photographs in my own home but I have been very fortunate recently in gaining access to a great many more photographs from my cousins and siblings. Most were sent to me electronically so they are already perfect for a blog.
Two cousins shared with me their family photograph albums. One of these cousins also shared a number of picture postcards that had belonged to our grandmother; they are a delight and some of them will show up in this blog later on.
A third cousin was kind enough to send me original photographs from the 1860s and onward that had been in the possession of a distant cousin living in London. These originals are a wonderful resource (as well as being precious artefacts) and I will be using as many of them as I can in the blog.
A sample of the photographs I will be using is shown here:
