I came across this photo of Frank Cribb, my Grandad, while I was sorting out some old stuff today. This was taken by a photographer called Carlos W. Weise Photography in Santos, Brazil. Grandad was a bridge builder, and was working on construction projects out there, shortly before world war 2 I believe (unfortunately there is no date in the stamp on the back of the photo). Unfortunately he brought TB back from Brazil which he died from in 1946, when my Dad was 5 years old. Looks like a cool guy though.
Have a look on Google Maps and you can see why they needed bridge builders in Santos.

Looks like we’ve sold our trusty chariot child trailer today, as Tom is getting too big and heavy for it. The trailer really was one of the best things we ever bought – we had some truly great rides with Tommy in it. This picture is of me and Tom at Hartshill Hayes near Nuneaton back in August 2004 when Tom was just 5 months old. The trailer has taken Tom on rides around Portsmouth, the South Downs, The Isle of Wight, Dorset, Devon, Warwickshire, Brittany and the Champagne country. A truly marvellous contraption.
Now some nice people are coming to look at it and maybe buy it from us tomorrow.
Still, if they do buy it then it puts a few pounds into the tandem fund. Hoorah!
Have spent loads of time photographing prints to upload today with rather mixed results. There is quite a bit of distortion in some of the images, plus reflections of me and my tripod from those in frames. Might have to try again tomorrow with the scanner.
