School’s Out

I love this old photograph, showing children in their ageless cliques. Looking at the girls’ bonnets and the sign on the side of the building I think they are fresh out of Sunday School

Fast forward a hundred years and those lads would be getting thrown out of McDonald’s.

Spend-A-Penny Pops

A great old photograph here, with “Momsie, Rita, Hazel and Dorie” written on the back, along with the year – 1910.

The four women look into the camera as they are about to leave on a journey, or perhaps they have pulled over along the way, because if you look carefully you can see someone in the background.

Is that Pops?

When you gotta go you gotta go.
