prisonerThere is so much to be discovered about convicts in Buckinghamshire. From the debitors in the Bridewell to those who hang or get transported. This will be a facinating talk

Many of us have old family photographs, but sometimes it can be frustratingly difficult to guess the identity of the sitter. A knowledge of the way photography and fashions changed can narrow down the date at which a photograph is likely to have been taken. In the same way that fashions change, so do military uniforms.
But unlike fashions, uniforms changed at set dates and once you know the basics you can start identifying your own. Graham hopes you'll let him help you with this 'dark art', and invites you bring along your own photographs for identification and dating. They must be originals, though, which to the trained eye can hold a mass of information. He'll do his best from a very high resolution scan, but really, you need to find that original.

 

This is out first talk at the new Aylesbury venue. Turnfurlong Junior School see Central Branch for the map and other details.
