pfs8803 FORGOTTEN PHOTOGRAPHS: “Charade”

Forgotten photographs - Charade

I found this photo at ‘Chor Bazaar’ (thief market – a shopper’s paradise) in Bombay when I was searching for vintage Indian photographs. I think it was made during a typical charade party, which must have been British and probably pre WWII.

pfs8807 FORGOTTEN PHOTOGRAPHS – ‘Uncle Henny’

Ome Henny (uncle Henny) was always keen to travel, interested to see the world. This picture from around 1950 shows him in a somewhat heroic pose on top of a rock in the Schnee Eifel (Germany). Open shirt, suspenders and mountain boots, his camera ready to be used. His hair styled like Tintin. He must have known about the term ‘wanderlust’.
He used to travel with his wife tante Gert (auntie Gert) on their motorbike with sidecar -even when they were in their seventies when they crashed it in a remote area in Spain.
