meonthebeachWhen my parents recently passed away they left behind a large number of photograph albums and an even larger number of negatives. We three brothers split the archive between ourselves, with a view to scanning and sharing everything. Recently, I have started this work with some of the older negatives, and here’s a photograph I came across. I can remember those woollen trunks. They itched and scratched and, once wet, became uncomfortably heavy and started to stretch. Also, they took ages to dry and left you feeling chilly and damp long after you’d come out of the water. I don’t look unhappy though, do I?
