not much history to find on this house , somewhere in the midlands

couldnt get a decent external shot due to the ammount of growth round it,

the house was one of those prefab jobs made from fibre board containing white asbestos

i liked the wallpaper in some rooms it was very 1970s

old nova in the garage and caravan thats seen better times in the jungle of a garden

bit pic heavy as there was a few bits to see

Fantastic time capsule and very nicely captured. The old photos really do it for me.

Sad to see this sort of thing.. Obviously some old person, that died after living out many years alone. The car was presumably bought when they retired. The tax ran out 9 years ago..

You can tell they were an intelligent, well to do type, by the stuff in the house. The musical instrument reeds, and the cartridge cases. One looks like a .303 and the other maybe a .308..

The nursing contributions book dated 1946/47/48...  if you go from 1946 it is about 43 years until the car was made, and the tax ran out 9 years ago. Sooo i would say they were born in about 1926, started nursing in about 1947, did 44 years and retired at 65 in 1991 and bought the car brand new, and, as the tax ran out 9 years ago, i guess they died at about 84 years of age. You can tell they were a single bloke, by the stuff in the house having being untouched since about 1950 by the look of it and i doubt many women would run about with a full bore sporting rifle either.

The photos must be their parents and siblings.. I like the balsa rubber powered model aircraft kit. That would be from the 1960's i would guess..

Seems a terrible way for someones life to end up..

some of the papers and bits all leave clues as to who the people were and the lives they lived , thats why i enjoy this hobby , capturing the whats left ,

there is a gun cabinet next to the coat on the door, it was locked contents unknown

Oh yes! i never noticed the gun cabinet. After the occupant left, his cert would have expired at some stage, and the police would have been round. You need "good reason" now for shotgun certs, and you have always needed it for a firearms cert, and the police check, so if he was no longer in a club or what ever, they would not have renewed the certs anyway..

Lovely photos though!! Well done you!!
