A few years back a load of stuff got left outside our house from a house clearance. I managed to rescue a Sydenham familie’s photo albums from the 70s. Mostly the pictures are crap photographically but together there’s a certain Britishness to them. After watching the Mariner’s Children video ‘It Carved Your Name Into The Ground’ by Betsy Dadd, I thought I’d do this with all of them and eventually put them to music I suppose. For now here is a gif.
