Loving Son

Found in the YMCA charity shop, Bedminster, Bristol. The inscription reads 'To My Darling Mother from Her Loving Son, Leslie'. Lovely.

Not my ex's nephew

Found at Waterstones Cribbs Causeway a few years back. Reminds me of a nephew of an ex girlfriend, though I'm sure he would disagree.

Vicar in a Frame

I often use picture frames found in charity/junk shops for my artwork; the frames usually having an image already in them which I remove and put to one side. Sometimes behind the displayed picture there will be other stuff that has been covered up - another image, bits of card, paper, dirt, etc... This vicar was found betwixt a watercolour and wood panel. The text on the photo reads 'H. M. Viale(?) & Co, Bristol' and on the back, in ink, 'Southville, Bristol'.
