EBay Find – Old Framlingham Photographs!!

EBay Find - Old Framlingham Photographs!!

I recently acquired on the internet an old family photograph album from the early 1920’s that on the description listed that it included pictures of Aldeburgh, Bawdsey and Walberswick in Suffolk. Therefore I was very pleased upon receipt and closer inspection to find interspersed with the other photographs a few shots of Framlingham Church and Castle.

There are a few general shots of the Castle, but the most interesting one shows repair work being carried out inside the castle grounds in 1924.

St Michael’s Church is also shown again from 1924 with a large notice board hanging on the front doors.

There is a photograph of a gentleman (possible owner of the album) holding a camera on Bawdsey beach, but that means that there is more than one person with a camera on this holiday!

I have looked for clues as to the possible previous owner, but have found no clues; therefore it seems to be a record of family holidays in Suffolk between 1922 and 1924 and is a lovely record of their obviously very happy times spent in the County after World War 1.

If anyone has any extra information regarding these photographs then I would be pleased to hear from them.
