Vintage photos from the fair





This is a selection of photos bought at the Shepton Mallett Antiques Fair over the weekend. It's interesting how differently stallholders rate this kind of stuff. On the whole, unless there is a very good subject, I don't like to pay more than £2-3 for a Cabinet photo and yet routinely I come across ridiculously ordinary photos priced up at £5-10 for no apparent reason. Other dealers don't really understand photos or paper ephemera and when they get some they might put them out on their stall for a pittance and they need to be snaffled imediately. Anyway, for one reason or another, these were a few that caught my eye this weekend.

The one of the grim couple with the bulldog is an absolute corker. The very spirit of mean-fisted middle England solidity!
