All this week I'm going to be posting old family photos and the text will be written by Karole, my mum, since I wasn't even alive at the time they were taken.

Why? Because we found a load of old black and white prints recently and I really like them. I think they have some value beyond the sentimental qualities they hold for us so I decided to post some of them here.

That's enough waffle from me. Over to mum:

"Of all the pictures coming over the next few days, this perhaps brings back the most memories. One week a year we went on holiday to a Warner's Holiday Camp with friends and family - a whole bunch of us - and just had fun.

"I don't remember this holiday in particular but it sums up my whole 'summer' childhood. Why Dad was wearing a suit to cycle I have no idea - perhaps it was evening time and we were going to dinner. Just look at those lovely old cars in the background. Oh memories!"

- Karole

Agree with Jon on this one, step aside Jamey! :) Well preserved shot and nicely transformed onto the interweb.

Very nice idea! Glad the pictures have aged too as it really adds to feeling of looking back in time.

Thanks all for your lovely comments - I'd like to take all the credit but it was J's idea and all his work - I just supplied all the memories and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it. Thanks, Karole
