Margaret & her Box Brownie Camera, Grange Road, Thornaby

t14593I took this photograph of Margaret Hope standing on Grange Road, Thornaby when she was about eight or nine, I don’t know whether she took one of me as we both had Box Brownie Cameras for either birthdays or Christmas. The films only took eight photos and were quite expensive at the time, I think I only ever had two films. I also had a flash attachment, my uncle Bob Huggins showed me how to develop them, but we never had the money to go on with this hobby.

One thought on “Margaret & her Box Brownie Camera, Grange Road, Thornaby

  1. I went to St Patrick’s primary School with Margaret Hope from Grange Road. We were good friends. I lived in St Paul’s Road. Did Margaret Hope emigrate to Australia? My name was Heslop too but I don’t think you and I are related.
