My history in pictures!

Well history is a bit of a misleading word, some pictures from the old days is more like it!

A while ago I was contacted by someone who'd come across a website of a photographer who's name now escapes me, how awful huh? Anyway he tooks pics of me and Paul my husband at a club in London years ago, like 18 years ago approx, I think I can't really remember! Then he came to our house at the time and took some pics of us at home, these were featured in a Sunday Mag at the time, again so long ago I can't remember which one. But I thought you might want to see them.

They are great for me as they are so stylised and also remind me I was young once, oh yes I was! It's also interesting to see that is was the time when I had a much more 40s look than the 50s look I soon adopted and still have today.

I hope you like them!


You've seen this one before when I was saying how much I love this dress and oh those shoes, how I miss them!



This one makes me laugh, my hair is enormous! And let me tell you that is ALL hair I have very thick hair!





These 2 make me laugh, he wanted me to look at my husband adoringly - well he wasn't my husband at the time - now I love Paul very very much, but I'm really not the adoring little woman type so these are very out of character for me, still I seem to play the part well ha ha!



I love this picture of Paul!



Ah this brings back such memories, we found that 40s suite at a junk shop at the end of our road can you believe? Are those were the days when you see stuff like that everywhere, that would be near enough £1000 now, I sadly can't remember what happened to it or in fact that great radio! Where did these things go?

I hope you enjoyed a little journey into my past!

Great photos! I like to think I haven't changed- then I look back at pics of my hubby and I long ago.

Thanks for putting them up, they're great. Shame you don't have the magazine. Next time I contact Eddie Hope I'll ask him if he still has a copy. Bet he does as he contributed and knowing Ed he never lets anything go!
Do you have a video of that TV doc that was made around the same time. I remember Paul was in it getting his hair cut?

Straight Talking Mama! said...

hey no problem thanks for reminding me, Rohan sent me them last year and I did get in touch with the photographer but can't remember his name now!

I think we do have the mag just not sure where, I know we wouldn't have thrown it out. Oh yes we have the documentary but still on VHS, I've never watched it, can't watch myself on film! Must get it transferred to DVD!!

Reg Varney said...

I never met the photographer, that's why I presumed it was Gordon. Funny I can remember Rohan didn't comment for the magazine write up as he didn't want to misrepresent the scene. Back when exposure wasn't always positive or welcome, how times have changed!...

I can't believe I've only just seen these!! Words fail me... (in a good way!) I LOVE that low angle one of Paul - and I think he should start wearing bow ties again. And you should have implausibly massive hair again. Love it!!

Miss Elly said...

Just saw these for the first time, they're so great!
