Hope you are having a lovely weekend and not snowed in, flooded or having any nasty weather... hopefully you are somewhere nice and cozy and maybe having some arty fun.
Our snow has gone today and fortunately the flooding predicted for the next town along the coast to us didn't come to much.
Today I am linking my digital page to AJJ 'Tell me a story' this months fun theme chosen by Erika from BioArtGal
Thanks for the great comments on my previous AJJ page 'The Caretaker' - I haven't had time during the week to continue that story yet... so for now, here's a quick digital page...about another story.
The four lovely Egyptian elements credit & thanks to Valerie (thanks valerie x)
My late father gave me a photo album about 15 years ago but didn't know exactly who on his side of the family had started the album. The first photo with a date is 1902 and I am guessing that the photos here are sometime between 1902 and maybe 1914 but probably the earlier date.
The last photos in the album, towards the back, definitely are 1914-1918 as my paternal grandfather born 1896 is in some when he was in the R.A.M.C.
The photos are of soldiers, sailors, lots of boats, Pyramids, the King in Malta in 1903, a boxing match and all sorts, including a few photos possibly from the Boxer revolution that are so horrendous I could never show them.
I have managed to solve a few mysteries - one photo of a soldier had a name and address on, and I was able to trace the daughter of the soldier. It turned out that she had never seen this photo before - she told me about her father and his brothers who were all soldiers during WW1 but the connection to my family and why he was in the this album is a mystery still.
If only each photo in this mysterious album could tell its tale... I wonder what stories it would tell.
Thank you for stopping by.
I will try and catch up with your posts
that I've missed last week asap.
