Can you help and tell me identify this vintage image
Where was this photograph taken? I’m having trouble identifying the place. I certainly don’t know the identity of the lady gardener.
I’ve been sifting though more of my extensive archive of old negatives and transparencies again. Sorting and then scanning those photographs that have stood the test of time. It’s such a time-consuming job that I can only do it is short bursts of a couple of days at a time. Frankly, I find sitting in front of a computer tedious and boring. Still, it has to be done.
Anyway, I came across this picture the other day. I really quite liked it. The negative strip of four was in its own sheet and is labelled simply – ‘Allotment Lady’. The label has a date of 1990. Nothing else to give a clue as to where I took it. I certainly can’t remember taking it – but then that’s quite common. I have taken a lot of pictures in my long career.
I’m guessing I may have taken it either in Stoke-on-Trent, or in The Black Country – maybe around Wolverhampton or Tipton.
And who is the lady? Well, I suppose a rear view is not the easiest way to identify someone, but you never know.
So, just where was this photograph taken? If you can help, please contact me and let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
