This new blog will be completely different from our old ones. More of an emphasis on the esoteric, over heard conversations, snatches of the past and any current obsessions we may have.
My current obsession is Victorian Gardening and I've decided that from a social history point of view, I'd like to collect images of people in gardens or people with plants. I'm just starting out, so I thought I'd keep you entertained with a previous collection. Dogs - and people with dogs.
No set style, just whatever took my fancy
