A Vintage Photo Reveals a Simple Moment at a Historic London Landmark
“You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” -Ansel Adams
My Nana and Uncle Tony in London, feeding the pigeons in Trafalgar Square.
Though Trafalgar Square is the largest square in London, and is often said to be the heart of the city, this little moment there seems so intimate and personal.
It must have been around 1949. At the time, my grandparents, uncle and father were living in Crawley in Sussex, so they must have been on a little city holiday to London.
My Nan and Grandad were from Ireland originally, but they moved to the UK for work. My Grandad set up a plastering company over there and my Nana worked in a school kitchen.
They eventually moved back home to Ireland, but our old photos are special reminders of this time in their lives. ~shared by @lolliemul
