Here's mine.

Dug a few things out of the remains of my late father's possessions and made a quick montage in tribute to him.

Here's mine

I was out on the Worldwide Photo Walk in Denia last night. And thought that this might be something suitable.



This is the tunnel underneath Denia castle that was built in Roman times that was used as an air raid shelter during the Spanish Civil War. The commemorative tablet is outside the entrance and was superimposed to put it into context.

When I was a child the only square box we had for entertainment, was the Punch & Judy show.  ;D
Mr. Punch:



Good luck all.  :tup:

My parents are from the island of Barbados and even I still consider it as home (so I wouldn't pass the Norman Tebbit test)

"Hogscrapers" were cheap iron candlesticks manufactured in Birmingham in the mid-1800s.  They were so named because the sharp-egded base doubled as a tool to scrape the bristles off a slaughtered hog.  There is a bit of family background in the hogscraper trade and as a consequence I have a small collection of these.

My Ancestors.  A picture of my Dad, Grandad & Uncle Burt taken just after the war. The picture looks more like three gangsters with my Grandad being the Godfather.
