About this website

This website has been created to share 150 years of our family photos in the hope others will find a connection with people and places of the past. The years range mainly from the 1860s to the 1980s with a few later photos. They are all original photos and slides that I've inherited and scanned apart from a few kindly donated. Over time I'll scan and upload more. 

These photos must NOT be used commercially or by businesses without permission. If in doubt please email using the link in the footer of this page.

However please feel free to use these photos online or offline for history related articles or research but please do not change the details attached to the photos. A lot of these original photo were carefully labelled with dates, places and names and it's important to maintain historical accuracy.

To see a photo at full resolution first click on the photo then click once again to view.

Maiden names or first names only have been used in a lot of the more recent photos to protect privacy.  I've been researching the family history for almost 20 years so know where most of the relatives in the photos fit in the family tree. There's some basic family history information on my website here though most of my research is offline. Please send me an email if you'd like more information. 

There are also many photos of friends of the family from long ago and I have very little information about most. Others I can remember our parents and grandparents mentioning.

If there are any errors or additions to the information attached to the photos please email me so I can update the information.
