Photo of the day – A 1950’s Trip to Europe – The Start – The UK

00184_s_10afaw2ee20184_ba Everyday once in a while, I will be posting a photo from the collection of images I have of a trip that was made to Europe in the 1950's by a family I do not know or have ever met. The full story of these images can be found here. Back in this era, people did not take picture like we do now. It was expensive and a real luxury. I really feel that getting this treasure trove of old photos was really a find!

Instead of a huge story, I am gong to post a pic a day with a little caption. Let's watch together as this story evolves.
