    Default Dingle People, c1900

    Here are the final two photographs from the small collection of Dingle negatives I have been posting over the last week. Unfortunately, the photographer has left no details as to the location of either image – or about the event the children are dressed up for. Perhaps it is a Whit Walk – the outfits [...]

    Great pics Colin.

    How long was the exposure? Not everybody could hold the pose either. The boy in front of the door wearing a cap [the boy not the door ] looks as if he has mischief on his mind.

    Didn't we have a lovely day,the day we went to blackpool.

    They're all wearing badges so I'm assuming it'll be a day out somewhere? quite common in those days to take your kids to the beach,not like today where most households have a car and can't be arsed getting up early on a sunday to make a day of it.

    But then again it could be Saturday? as the Vics where always at church on a sunday,the upper classes even went to the extent of having their own personal bible printed.Fact.

    It must have been the middle class of Dingle, the working class couldn`t afford the clothes or the cycles in that era
