Amateur Theatre in the 1960’s

I was fortunate to find an album of photographs kept by Peter Hibbitt, an amateur actor as a record of his stage performances.  These provide a great insight into stage production during the 1960’s.

Photographic Gems in a second hand shop.

We have a small house clearance shop just across the road from our church and I usually look in when I pass by. I have an interest in old postcards and photographs and this week I was lucky to find these two wonderful photographs from the 1940’s ?                                           tolley-portrait-07-12-16

What a wonderful  portrait, a work of art, undated, by Guttenberg Photographers, Manchester.

I love the composition of this photograph, how ones eye is lead to the farmhouse, then the fields beyond. Again this photograph is undated but the chalk quarry in the far distance on the right suggest the home counties.
