A Memorial Lady

I bought this photograph from a flea-market at the same time as a bundle of World War I or Great War letters.  Along with a very battered Victorian Photograph Album that I bought some time ago from Ebay (I felt sorry for it) they have been lying in a cupboard waiting patiently for me to find an appropriate home for them.

The good news is, I contacted the Imperial War Museum, London at the end of last year, and they have offered the letters a permanent home in their collection.  I knew that I had to liberate them from the market, just not what I should do with them, so this is brilliant news.  I am now scanning them before I send them off.

The Victorian Album, however, is another project that is still waiting for me.  The Lady of the letters though, can now been seen by all.

  1. Here I am going through my Google Reader when I should be sleeping and I come across your wonderful post! I am glad you found a home for the letters and other items – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve done the same thing while on Ebay for fear that the seller might eventually just trash the collection!

    • I think I wrote that post when I should have been sleeping! I’m glad you liked it. I just can’t help myself, so it’s always a nice bonus when I find a good home for things.
