Another trawl of Uncle Eric’s photos.
I wonder which bridge this is that was being built or repaired in the 1930s or 40s.
This is East Gate, Warwick, taken during his cycling holiday in 1930.
And Guy’s Cliff Mill, Warwickshire, from the same holiday.
This was from the same holiday and what amazes me is how smart Lichfield Cathedral looks. When I first saw it in the 1960s it was as black as Hades but here the stone looks as clean as anything – partly thanks to the print being over-exposed. Uncle Eric, like Dad, did all his own developing and prinitng.
Here is a close up using the original negative.
This is from his Cornish cycling holiday in 1932.
This is Mold’s main street around the mid 1930s.
This is a Mersey Ferry boat from the late 1920s or 1930s. I think it may be the Upton which was taken by the army in 1941 for use as a ferry and supply vessel for the anti-aircraft forts in Liverpool Bay.
The famous Overhead Railway that ran along the dock road, Liverpool. Photographed at midnight by Uncle Eric in the early 1930s.
A beautiful country scene – probably from Somerset or Warwickshire – 1930 or 1931.
