I'm rehanging pictures in the hallway today. The walls have just been painted (I will avoid telling the year-long story of leaks from the flat upstairs/insurance claims etc) in Lime Explosion which is a brave colour choice from someone who's been stuck in it's-a-wall-paint-it-white mode since about 1964.
I adopted these two chaps as honorary relatives about 30 years ago when I rescued the photographs from a car boot sale. The top one is dated 1918 and that's a Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment) flaming grenade cap badge at the bottom of the original copper-covered frame. The bottom photograph has a modern mount and frame; Schofield, Brighton is hand-written below the image.
This blogging-every-day-business is not as easy as it looks. By the time I've posted a day's worth of Hove Daily Photo and Archive (although Archive postings are not as regular as HDP ones) I'm beginning to run out of NaBloPoMo steam. So for today, I'll leave you with this rather wonderful 1947 image of Billie Holiday.
I really like sentimental old postcards, particularly the 'hands across the sea' type like this one. It's amazing how many have survived in good condition - this one's 105 years old. I've uploaded several more to my Archive blog; you can find them here.
