A little journey through some of my vintage images ...

Sorry I've not posted anything for a while. Thought that I'd share a few of my vintage images.

So ... let's go for a walk on a summer's day ...

... and maybe catch a coach when our legs get tired ...

... to take us to the beach where the huts are being built ... leaving the men to saw wood and the women and children to play ...

... maybe fishing in the rock pools or digging in the sand ...

... then, perhaps a trip to the fair ...

... and before long it's time for the little ones to go home for jellies and cream ...

... whilst maybe we end the day with a night under the stars around a camp fire?

Which is all a lot better than cleaning the windows! :)


  1. I love the picture of the children with the big jelly etc! The expression on their faces!!

  2. i love the last pic of the window washing

  3. I adore this era .. it all looked so much more wholesome.. No scowling hoodied youth, or girls caked in make-up and piercings..
    Or.. is it just that I am getting old and the good old days seem to much rosier!

  4. Looking at all these images I felt a real yearning for the world to be like that still. We try to make it so as much as we can, but I do like the fact that 40 in 2009 isn't incredibly ancient as it was in the past.
