great photos - is the bottom one a studio shot or was it really a dinner at some romantic ruin?

Interesting, they were very much into ancestral tales and romantic ruins.
There is a definite resemblance between you and your Grandad. Maddie reckons herself from an early age. (So did I actually). It's always the way. ;-)

Caroline: I've always assumed it was a studio shot and knowing the weather up there they would have looked a trifle more wind blown if not.

fjl: Just a long as I don't have his moustache!

My mum would love this blog but she hates coming to the computer. One weekend I'll drag her here.

What wonderful old photos!

I compare your photos with the ones around our house from the same time. One can see the difference among the Americans, English and Germans.

Cool stuff.

Cheers.

Oh...old photographs; so affecting. They catch time - yet make it seem so fleeting.. Glad clothes for women have changed...the more so when I see pictures like this.

Good work. Carry on.

PI said...

GG: That is a bit of a problem.

Kenju: Thank you. It's miracle that I've actually got them posted.

Randall: Maybe you'll let us see some on your blog.

granny p: What would we do without trousers?

andrewm: thank you sir.(smart salute)

Lovely that they are all so fixated on their pipes - we've got similar pics from the same generation :).

PI said...

Ally: Grandad smoked a pipe all the time I knew him. The smell is still evocative but one seldom smells it these days.

I love your pictures. Do they bring back good memories for you?

PI said...

GU: So far so happy. Later - we'll see.
