Remember those colourful posters of yesteryear that made you feel you wanted to go to sea ?
They were romantic and captured ones imagination in a way that photographs never could, stand by your station for the first of a boatload !! Here is the Normandie, French elegance at its greatest ,enjoy,

Here is a very old poster,it is for the White Star Line and the ship is unnamed because it was one of the many which White Star planned for the Transatlatic traffic. The Olympic and the Titanic were amongst the first to go into service,

Hi Tom ,I got your e.mail and I have succeeded in downloading pictures to Photobucket,I'm having a bit of trouble in uploading them to site from Photobucket. I am a real technophobe.
See how this postcard from 1920 comes out,this is not a copy but the real McCoy,

Hi Tom, I still can't get my pictures off Photobucket and download the to our site. I have tried with these tonight ......and failed. This is another postcard from one of George Pembertons friends,he is no relation to me ,a very good friend who knows of my interest in ships let me have these little treasures to share with you. There's only a few signed ones ,all the rest are unused postcards ,bur none the less interesting,

Hi All .
Brian , i was just wondering if the mention of Chums, on the post card. Would that be the Chums boys magazine, as Ive a chums book of all the magazines of 1896. Found it when i was a kid in a dustbin. Keep the post cards coming, they are very enjoyable.
Geoff

i noticed on the left side of the post card it says, "inland postage, NOT Foreign". i wander why it was restricted.


if you try to post another link from photobucket, and it goes wrong, just leave it in the post so i can look at it Brian.

Do you mean this magazine Taffy, in all likelihood that must be the case. Old comics are my second love after ships

my heart skipped a beat when I first viewed this on,until I viewed the date..................!!!
Those different postal rates Tom,it is the card that states it is only for in land postage,the stamp shows it as being the inland rate,1/2d, maybe they were a cheaper card in quality. We'd have to find an old postman to learn the difference and ,hey ,I'm an old postman from way back.

Taffy ,read the end of this card;he refers to going somewhere with his two chums,so it may not be the comic after all

Hi Brian.
Yes thats the one, the book goes from ,
Number 232, vol V, Feb 17th 1897-
Number 258, vol V, Aug 18th 1897.
The first 30 pages are damaged but they get better as the book goes on.
Interesting piece on Liverpool page 829.
THE COLLY KIDS AND THEIR CLUB.
Nowhere in the three kingdoms can you see more bareheaded and barefooted street Arabs to the square mile than in Liverpool. If you searched the whole city end from end, i doubt whether you could find a score-you certainally could not find many- little pariahs of the pave with shoes and stockings. Such wear is beyond them as a class; and the naked feet of the youngest is a fair indication of there general condition,, which is worse on a whole than even the London gutter urchins.""
I hope things have changed since then :o
Geoff

As a child growing up in Toxteth I saw poverty that had children going barefoot. Granby Street was where we used to see the barefooted urchins, we were poor and used to put cardboard in our shoes, we would call it "walkin'on der polish".We had to pass Granby Street to get to our dinner centre in Dinawban Street and used to suffer fusillades of stones as we passed through. We were considered "posh" by those kids. Bit like the Yorkshiremen in Monty Python,the reality was'nt funny though.

Hi Brian.
Do these Chums magazines have a monetary value to them.?
As i said earlier i picked this book up from a bust bin as a kid , and for some reason kept it all these years. It certainly looks to be an up market type of magazine going by the adverts. IE For a bike. Advert.
THE GEMSREDE MIGET SAFTY.
long wanted come at last.
weight only 18lbs for boys or girls.
up to age 10 years.
GUARANTEED CUSHION TIRES, 6 pounds 10 shillings.
WELCH DUNLOP,OR any Best Tires. 8 pounds 10 shillings ;Ditto 24inch wheels 9 pounds 9 shillings.
SPECIAL LINE AMERICAN PNEUMATIC TIRES, 24 INCH WHEELS, 5 POUNDS 5 SHILLINGS; DITTO EXTRA QUALITY WOOD RIMS,7 pounds 12 shillings

How many weeks wages would it be for the average worker?
The other piece i did was one the Coliseum athletic club, it had a picture of the kids. is there a way of putting on a post, like take a photo and copy it. But nothing to technical as I'm on dial up and very slow. I E average u tube video is 20 mins to 1 hr to down load.
Geoff, peddling as fast as i can

Hi Geoff,
Chums ran from 1897 right up until 1941(a lot of comics were killed off then,newsprint was restricted) A vintage copy ,in good condition will sell for between £5 to £7.50(see E.Bay)
Those bicycles were hellishly expensive,the average adult wage at the beginning of the 20th century was approx £3.00 per week.Comics that bring in the Ackers are first editions or mint conditions. I have got some oldies but the condition of them is not up to retail. I just love switching of and reading some of the really crap one.Post war British comics were pretty dismal at the time,but looking at them now they were good for what the artists and writers had to work with. Poor quality paper and low quality publishing,that is why we preferred the DC comics with Superman and friends and the funnies fom American newspapers. If we had copies of them today you would have to insure them.
Now ,I don't know how to post video clips ,but posting photos ,or pictures ,is easy if you have a scanner. I just scan whatever,file it in my pictures,and then click upload attachment ,browse for the particular picture and then click add file and put your text in . Don't forget to title it and then click submit. I bet I'm teaching granny to suck eggs here.
Thanks for those kind words of yours,it keeps me going,
BrianD

Remember If you are scanning from newspaper or book, set the scanner for doscreen.
This will hide the pattern of the unprinted paper.

I really like this card, it's another one to Dora Halfacre,this time from an Egyptian friend /admirer. The date is Islamic,22nd of the tenth month of the moslem year 913. The ship pictured is the P & O liner Japan. Somebody had the stamp, for their collection no doubt,
