Keeping busy
means I don't get up to mischief.

I had a nice little scan of early photographs taken in Nailsea.
          This one was a large negative of Nailsea Christchurch 
A rather nicely done line drawing in a sepia.

                            A Nailsea school photograph of 1898

Expressions vary from sitting bored stiff, to wonderment. What a lovely hat the teacher is wearing - obviously her Sunday best.

                           School of 1908 
Larger class and even more varied expressions on the kids faces from dubious to subdued fright and in one case - with head tilted sideways - semi-scientific evaluation maybe.

                                 Nailsea postmen and Postmaster with boater?

Evidence of Nailsea's growth perhaps to require 5 postmen by 1908. Pity it was not taken just outside of the main post office to get an idea of what it looked like.
