Got given a vintage photo album by a man called Larry last Sunday.
He bought it some years ago in Cumberland street market for a fiver.
The photographer seems to follow a boat crew, methinks, and the second person from the left and the one on the right are reoccurring in some of the photographs.
The the hardcover bound book is clothed in green with a light orange brown rectangle card on the left that reads ” Pictures From My Camera” with a flower underneath that looks like a Fuschia blowing in the wind …There are about 2 dozen photographs in all. The crew, some different sailing? boats, one the size of the “Jeanie Johnson” and another like a “Galway Hooker”, landscapes and a few street scenes …
What a crew! They look like they’re about to embark on an expedition. There is comfort amongst them and it feels like they know eachother well.
I think the time frame is early decades of the 1900’s. The photographs are very thin photography paper, most of them matte with a few glossy ones.
I’ve been fascinated ever since and want to make it one of my pet projects. I’ll keep updating as time permits, follow the tag ” PicturesFromMyCamera ” on the right or subscribe to the newsletter if you want to keep updated.
Peace and Cheese
