There's also a sense of curiosity. This bookmark was hiding inside a secondhand book I bought a few years ago.
Who were Peggy and Alice? Friends? Sisters? Colleagues or neighbours?
This was another picture found inside a book. I love how they all look so happy. Maybe they're just about to set off on a ramble, maybe they've just got back. There are some interesting hairstyles and glasses. And trousers...
I actually paid for this photo. I saw it at a stall selling antique clocks. It tugged at my heartstrings. The man looks so proud of that chair - I can only assume he made it himself.
Isn't he sweet? I wonder if he was local and if he had a happy life. I hope so. If you can be so pleased with something so simple, I'd imagine you'd be pretty content with your lot.
