Recently when visiting family in Bristol I visited a car boot sale in the area, buying a shoebox full of old postcards and on closer inspection found several old photographs in the bottom of the box – sadly none of the photographs have names on them, although a few have numbers and they are all from various photographic studios.
Could you have a connection? Do you recognise a familiar face from your own family tree? Do you have a particular interest in any of the photographic studios shown? – if you do please get in touch, as I would love to reunite any of the photographs if possible – although I know this is a long shot!!
