When dad died aged 88 in June 2016 I took the 15 family albums home with me. These albums document some aspects of mum and dad’s lives and I plan to digitise all the images and then curate them into something meaningful for me and my family.┬áThe first photo dates from about 1900 and the last 2010. Accordingly this blog was set up primarily to be a photographic record of my parent’s photos covering that period.


However there is a second purpose to this blog. It acts as a point where I share photos and reflect on things. One main thrust of the blog is our gradual relocation to Old Portsmouth and you can see posts about this under the category of Old Portsmouth and more general musings are categorised under the title Ponderings.

Enjoy (or even better, engage).
