I have

… been rummaging in Granny’s goodie tin again (anything to keep warm) and have found these.
Now, the story with this torn photo, as told to me by my Granny was, ‘Well, when someone in the photo had been nasty, horrible, had done something ugly, they were torn out!’ That’s that! No chance to talk and sort the problem out! Heaven forbid that, that was the ultimate punishment for a misdeed!!! By the looks of this photo, there were two ‘bad’ people. The one on the right looks as though he could have been a teenager?!?!? Maybe he hid Granny's bed-pan in the cupboard, or he put his pet bull frog in there (for safe keeping) just assuming :)The backing on this photo is headed The Windsor Magazine. If you can’t make out what it says, e-mail me and I’ll let you know about the Inns of Quay on 13 January 1883, such as it was LOL headless bits and all!! (It was stuck upside down on the newspaper)

This couple also falls under Unknown Ancestors. You are welcome to use this image and the others that I have posted previously but please don’t reproduce to sell as part of a collage or anything similar. They are for your personal use only.
What a handsome couple!
Enjoy and have a giggle at the possible stories behind these photos!
Love and warm hugs to you all and thank you so much for your comments.
You know I appreciate them.

the unknown couple are a very handsome pair.
the group photo ...could it be that there have been 3 people removed...looking carefully to the left of lovely lady is a gents coat and a hand but it looks like background if not inspected closely.
have a great day sunday.

Could quite possibly be Chriss! Behind the elderly gent could be part of a ladies dress or part of the wall paper. OMG three little people who 'misdeeded'

Dearest Denise, You have the most amazing treasures imaginable! People are the same from generation to generation. I've seen people torn from our family photos too!!! And that anonymous very beautiful and handsome! Wouldn't you just love to know their story! Maybe you should write it for them.

Sending you hugs, warmth and love,
