Pippa Stainton has her beautifully restored pictures framed on the walls and is pleased to have sold several. Gilbert Tawn and I have been kept busy printing out copies of the photos on the display boards - many to people who recognise their younger selves at school, at Hook Gala or as trainee nurses for example.
I have been surprised at how far afield our visitors have come from - the Midlands, the North and London as well as from Goole of course, Howden, Barmby, Thorne, South Cave and many other local villages.
We have helped with family history, military records and found pictures of obscure parts of Goole. In all it has been a very rewarding couple of weeks - but I cannot deny I shall be pleased to spend a bit more time walking Molly and tidying up the garden next week.
|This view of Goole railway bridge in winter has been popular|
|This view of Goole market place in the snow has also been very popular and we have sold several prints of it.|
Get in touch if you would like a print of either picture!
