This site is a work in progress. I am currently in the process of moving everything from another site.

‚ÄčIn terms of photographs here, most are from collections of my mother and her parents. Where relevant photos have not been available, I have tried to find photos that are in the public domain or for which there is a Creative Commons licence. Increasingly, I have built up a collection of relevant items and ephemera and have scanned or photographed these myself. In a few cases, I have purchased licences to copyright material e.g. from Alamy, Shutterstock, Picture Nottingham or Inspire.

If anyone thinks that any materials here breach their intellectual property rights, please let me know and I will seek to address this.

If you wish to contact me about anything related to the site, please email me on
