The children looking at gulls on ice. I’m thinking of children behind bars.
As a self-confessed fan of both old movies and old photographs, I love this. It is Dolores Costello, who married John Barrymore, and is the grandmother of Drew Barrymore.
I’m sure there are other family members who could be name dropped here, too. 🙂
Oh the days before the world succumbed to sound and colour.
I love this old photograph. You can almost hear them singing ‘She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes’.
Late afternoon: my son and daughter, on the way home from school, try to get warm in the anaemic, atomic flush.
Kids playing together after eating all the Christmas sprouts.

Merry Christmas to you all. Don’t get chapped lips from all that kissing.
I saw this photograph on Facebook: winter, 1906.
At first glance, I thought the woman had a particularly large hat, until I realised it is the tree towering behind her.
And those two men beneath the bowlers? Perhaps they ended up reincarnated as the Kray Twins.
