7/52: Lifes Ephemera 1

By sherlob    
Whilst emptying my Dad's old council house following his death late last year I found a mass of ephemera dating from well before the date he moved into the house (1971). I found I couldn't throw all of this away as much of the material in some way told a story of Dad's life and I found it moving. I fancied honouring him by trying to use the material to develop a photography project of some type. This will be a project I return to periodically - I am in no hurry to complete it. Today the weather, combined with two failed attempts to take a 1/52 project photo made me consider starting. It occurred to me that in a strange way, as I use the material to tell his story I will be telling some of mine too - it looks like Dad's influence on me continues...

I shall follow the project with interest. Such finds often raise more questions than answers.

Interesting Adam.
I will shortly be doing much the same ref clearance, I just wonder what treasures lie in wait.
