Here is a little selection of vintage photos I've picked up recently. They have a bit of a holiday theme to them, except for the rather grumpy looking girl in stripes. I love the first photo even though it's in pretty and condition. Look at all the beach outfits. On the back it says, sent back to fair haven, with the wide grin, his face (white shirt) & goggles. I took this. It's kind of sad that I will never know what any of that means, although I assume it refers to the boy to the left of the middle. None of the other photos are captioned. I think the third photo looks like some kind of girl's sports team, except there is one boy in the photo. I really like the one of the four women playing about with the wheelbarrow, they look like they are having such a lot of fun. The second to last one is a classic holiday snap, I think her shoes remind me a bit of my clogs. As for the final one, it says on the back Falmouth 1945, so at least we know where it is. I would happily wear both of their outfits on my own summer holidays.
