Sepia Saturday – where we are inspired to use old photographs for new reflections.
I found this photo while hatching a cunning (up till now secret) plan for an adventure for Mr ImagesPast and me. It’s wheeled transport of a sort, only dog-propelled.
Douglas and Elsie were my Mum’s parents and Gordon was Douglas’s brother. Along with Douglas’s sister-in-law Betty, they went on an epic road trip from Scotland around parts of Europe in May/June 1955, which is almost 60 years ago. Time to celebrate their Diamond Anniversary of their holiday.
Here’s a photo that I haven’t identified yet, so there’s a bit of research to be done while I have the map out trying to follow their route.
My brilliant idea is to recreate said road trip (and photos) as a surprise and I’m looking forward to Mr ImagesPast’s reaction which, I am sure, will be huge excitement followed by a packing spree. It will also be a way of him justifying the bespoke luggage he recently ordered to fit in the boot of his car. We will, of course, need to take his car to fit in with the idea of me as Grace Kelly. Oh, now, there’s another thought, what a lovely souvenir a diamond or two would make.
