Thanks to the fastidious nature of my grandaunt, Ruth Balding, I have some photos with identification, and ~gasp~ even dates.

This is a Sepia Saturday post.

Head over there for more wonderful old photos and postcards.
ETA: I've received several comments from people about the first photo of my grand aunt, Ruth Balding.

I've written a follow-up about that photo alone, here.

Your photographs have such an evocative air about them. My favourites the first one and the one of Linky and friend - he looks so nonchalant in that "oh so casual but smart" tie - very 1920's.
