The value of everyday photos | Raking the moon

The value of everyday photos | Raking the moon

I’m sharing this post from Claire Maycock’s lovely blog mostly because I think it’s just so nice. And also because there’s something very Pythonesque  and I think, very, very British about the man with the big white pointer. And it just makes me smile.  Were it a film I can hear the Received Pronunciation voiceover we all know and love from the Pathe newsreels and those splendid public announcement films that used to be on TV in my younger (very) days.

But importantly, as Claire points out on her post, without such images as these, much minutiae of historical detail would have been lost. As in fact these pictures so very nearly were, but fortuitously they were rescued from a skip and now form part of the ever-growing, most marvellous Swindon Collection.
