Shanklin, Isle of Wight
his photo was taken in Shanklin Village, Isle Of Wight, in about 1924 by either my grandfather or my mother - probably the latter, since it was taken on a cheap box camera rather than my grandfather's nice plate camera. This is probably the same box camera I used as a child in the 1950s - literally box-shaped, and very limited (and, as you can see, with none too good a lens). The photo gives a nostalgic glimpse into the 1920s: and you can see a modern shot from about the same position on this web page.
