When my husband asked “what would you like for your birthday?”, my instant reply was “a trip to the local antiques fair!”. And I picked a lucky day, because I stumbled on this Victorian photograph album, stuffed full of cartes-de-visite and cabinet cards. Plus a few more recent black and whites, and a tin-type thrown in for good measure.
The album isn’t in the best of shape. I like to think it’s been well loved and that somewhere out there might be family who are missing it. The dealer had bought it in Wales and many of the photographs have a Welsh connection. Some are connected to the USA, and the rest… well, we’ll find out as we go along.
So it’s time to do some research and find out a bit more.
