Lost Relatives Awaiting Collection

This is another photograph in my series “Pictures From Nowhere“, which features photographs that have somehow come into my possession through fair means or foul. All I know about this particular orphan image is a date (which someone has kindly pencilled on the reverse) – 23 July 1946. It shows a splendid group gathered outside “Ryton House”, whatever or wherever that is. If anyone recognises any long lost relatives, please let me know and I will pop them in the post.

Having A Good Time

Walking In Torquay

So what do we know about this photograph? We don’t know who these two are, that’s for sure: they appear in album of someone else’s photographs, someone else’s memories. We do know, however, that it was taken in the quintessential English holiday resort of Torquay. ¬†And we have a date – 1928: the entire album is devoted to a tour of South Devon in that year. And they seem to be having a good time.
