Day 9~366

Still looking through all the stuff of my Mum’s that I had packed up in the loft. Love that the album is from 1921, so must be her mother’s album really as Mum wasn’t born til ’39. Glad that photography runs in the family! The watch belonged to Grandad, it doesn’t work but is really beautiful, will be shooting that again in the macro month. The medal is Mum’s she was a singer and won the Mrs.Sunderland medal for vocal music when she was 18 years old. Susannah Sunderland  was a famous soprano soloist, born in Brighouse, near Huddersfield, in 1819. The Mrs.Sunderland music festival is still ongoing and in it’s 126th year this year. And yet another pretty bone china cup.

  1. It’s amazing you had the technology in those years. In Peru that was something more limited and usually just for portraits in professional studios. A photography with several stories inside : )

    1. Yes I’ve been thinking about that. They would’nt have taken a paid photographer with them on their travels, they visited quite a few places in England, so am presuming Grandad or his brother had a camera. I had a look at available cameras in 1921 and think it possible they had a Kodak Box Brownie. But thats just a guess.
