I have always been interested in history not so much on a global, political, economic way as so often taught in schools, but on a social level i.e. what was it really like to live in certain time, what did the people look like, what did they do for a living, how did they get to their place of work, what did they eat etc? It is for this reason why I have also been collecting old Victorian and Edwardian photos because you can really get a sense and feel for a place from a photo arguably in more detail than you can get from just reading about it in a book. Through collecting these old photos I have also become very interested in stereo photography.
