I´ve always been fascinated by old photographs, I´ve spent lots of time looking through old photoalbums at fleamarkets and antiqueshops - been quite tempted to buy one...the image above is from a fascinating shop filled with ephemera in Liverpool. It´s tiny. I bought it for a pound. The photo is blurry. I wonder who this is. Did perhaps his lover place his picture in this pretty passepartout. Did someone miss him when looking at the picture, remembering his smile, the colour of his eyes?
I found this. I was so fascinated I googled even more images. Makes my imagination go wild! Why were these people arrested? I´d love to have some of these images on my wall. The one with the male back and the long skirt, was he arrested for wearing a skirt? And May Russell. Standing there with her purse. And look at the details on her jacket below the pockets. What did she do? Or Fay Watson. With the beautiful flower on her dress. I just cannot stop looking at the details.
