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 or already owned apart from a few kindly donated.

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, first names only or no names have been used in more recent photos to protect privacy. 

I've been researching the family history for 20 years so know where most of the old 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 many photos of friends of my grandparents from long ago. Some I can remember my  grandparents and parents mentioning.

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