I have long promised myself that I will properly sort out the multitude of photographs that currently reside in shoe boxes. I have made some effort over the years, by remembering to write names, dates and places on the reverse of the snaps, and by and large these have been catalogued in the same year. (Clearly an archivist I am not.) The above is from the Forbidden City in Peking, which we visited in November 1991.
This is the Bohemian Club, where I stayed when I visited San Francisco for the first time. Sadly there was no date on the reverse of this batch, but I managed to cross reference from my diaries and it was in September 1981.
And finally the drive at Glamis Castle in Scotland in September 1986.
Part of the project included having properly bound navy blue photograph albums made with my initials in gold embossed on the front. Several of these were produced, but alas very few photographs were affixed. So for this task to be completed properly, they will have to be sorted sequentially. But in order for that to take place there needs to be a serious edit. I can become easily distracted from this, as you might imagine.
