|Daisy and Albert's wedding group 13 Jul 1918, Stow Bardolph, Norfolk|
Daisy and Albert ran the Post Office in Stow Bardolph. The CHAPMAN family lived in the left hand cottage of the pair. The post box is still there built into the wall outside the right hand cottage. The second photo is a close up of Albert and Daisy. Their marriage took place on 13 Jul 1918, so towards the end of the war. Albert must have got leave for a couple of days. Yet again, my grandad is missing from the photo. I presume he was the photographer again? There seems to be a pattern emerging here. I always thought photography was a hobby for him, and maybe it was, but it also means I don't have that many early photos of him. I've always been interested in film photography. I had my own camera (an Ilford sprite) from a very early age (certainly before I left primary school). After my mum died and I inherited the family albums, I discovered pages of photos dating back to the 1920s and earlier. Although these days I have a digital camera, my husband has recently rediscovered the joys of film cameras!
