I think this is such a wonderful web page you've set up, and I was wondering if a new page under Childhood might be set up for a boarding school. Let me know if this might be considered. Thanks

I was so glad to see some of those old photos as I could recognise some of the era's in the photos, as Britain was a long time in them (or so it seemed) we never had bright colours and the places + the people sometimes looked older than they were, I grew up in the North East, Near Newcastle upon Tyne but it was a good childhood, no shootings, stabbings etc., just normal. But I recently viewed a newish book on the slums of Glasgow, & it was so pitiful it brought me to tears to see how a lot of those people lived or just got by. Plus you forgot to mention about the Jarrow Marchers who were going down to London & the Govt' to let them know how they were living at their wits end to make money to put food on the table. It was such hard times but the Govt' didn't seem to care. Life is funny how it repeats itself & as if we didn't learn the lessons well enough the first time around.

Great site. My job is to put Oxfam donated items onto Ebay. I looked up Senior Service Cigarette Cards and thought you might like to know we just put up the complete set of Britain From the Air, all 48 cards. (I saw that you don't have all of them.)
Thanks, Will at Oxfam Shop King's Lynn

I came upon this website by accident. My grandfather was born in (I believe) in Wiggens, UK, March 29, 1860 and died July 5, 1918. Not sure when he and my Gram married their first child was born in 1889.
