Fruit Pickers

This at first glance is an odd title however there is no other information I can add, either to the date or location of these original photographs. These five are some of my favourite photographs in my postcard collection. These show a happy group of fruit pickers posing for the photographer. If any of you readers can add any information I would be most grateful.


The gentleman standing next to the central post is in the process of shaving, the local priest is there as well, 4th gentleman from the right.


These are the children being well cared for, the boy kneeling 4th from the right has a penny whistle in his hands.


Here is the priest posing with the men, sitting on top of the car.


Another shot of the car and now a donkey has joined this happy band.


The gentleman with the razor has made a 2nd appearance (4th from the left) and in the foreground are what appear to be numbered cribs. There are three babes in arms visible in this image. The local priest has once again joined the group and is standing in the back row. Hope you have enjoyed this trip back to the past through these wonderful images.


Stars of the 1950’s

I purchased these original postcards many years ago and today would like to share them with you. Many I know will remember seeing these stars on film and on television. For instance, Dorothy Malone as Constance MacKenzie in the Peyton Place TV series, between 1964 & 1968. It was one of my mothers favourite soaps at the time and we all enjoyed watching it on our Black & White TV, hard to believe it was all those years ago. I hope this image and the others that follow will bring back happy memories.
