This just shows the pace of change. Ten years ago Minolta (the brand from Konica Minolta Group) were one of the major players in the 35mm still camera market.
The group were descended from the first company to make photographic film in Japan ( in 1903).
When the competition got really intense in the digital camera business, they opted out and sold all their technology and patents to Sony. The Dynax 40 may even be a collectors job one day.

I took this picture in 1979 in Salford. Rag and bone men with handcarts used to be a common sight on our streets but have completely vanished.

Two photographs I am posting for Gak. Here's what he wrote.

The motor bike one, is my Great Grandfather on his new Singer motor bike. The date being circa 1911-1914. I cannot be more specific than that. It was taken in Burnley, where he lived at the time. He began motorcycling when he was about 70 years old, died in 1915, aged 75, having owned at least 4 bikes. The group picture, will I believe, be self explanatory to you and others in Barlick. Back row Left to Right:- George Teal, Gordon Kippax, Alwyn Langsford, Brian Peacock, (cousin to the Stansfields) Seated Left to Right:- Donald Cutler, Trevor Broughton, Roger Stansfield, Malcolm Stansfield, and Gordon Jackson.

Unfortunately, some of these are no longer with us. Thanks. Gordon.(GAK)

I have found my 2000 negs and am scanning them in. They include pics of a Carleton College trip round western Europe and here is the group in the German cemetery at Langemark. This place really impressed me, largely because of thye contrast with the all white markers and monuments in the others. All the stone is black and I love the sillhouetted figures on the far side. Enemies or no, in this small plot lie the remains of 44,061 German soldiers. I have as much sympathy for them and their families as our own because they were all victims of the system.

Here's a pic that popped up this week. Robert Lambert who used to be funeral director at Briggs and Duxbury had rescued it. Barlick special constables in 1916. Now where was it taken? Is that Bank House up on the hill at the back?

My god! They do look special.

I'll bet all the local tearaways were terrified.

That was what I thought, why twenty, were they all there? I've put the question out about location. Great pic!

Would Robert Lambert be related to Walter who owned the timber yard in Nelson ?....I still have one of their Cricket bats...My Uncle Mac (David Malcolm Dugdale) lived in Barlick and  was a joiner  ( later Nelson) and Walter came to his funeral in 1984.

Probably to ensure they always had a quorum when they went up to t'Dog.

I wonder who they all were, is there any way to find out . I would like to think there was a Widdup amongst them, perhaps even a close family member

Sue, you'd almost think the ppolice have a museum and would have muster rolls of specials from 1916. Go to it! Just the woman to dig it out. (No names on the back of the pic)

I came across this pic while I was inserting pics in Vol III. Amazing how things have changed since 1983 when I took this. YEB showroom, Savages in full swing and a dress shop and antique shop where Taylforths are now.
