Crewe – 8 December 2002- Part One


8 December 2002, Crewe, Cheshire, UK

This photo strip was taken at Crewe train station at 8.35 pm. I was on my way home from celebrating an early Christmas with my sister and her family in Dublin. I was travelling with my husband, (now ex), my cousin Krissie and her son Ryan. According to my notes on the back of this strip, Ryan was four months and seven days old.

Krissie and her partner Tony, were living in the UK at the same time I was. Her sister Rachel was also living there. It was a fantastic two years of hanging out with them at every opportunity, and the longest time I have ever lived in the same country as my cousins.

Many of the photos in this long series are unremarkable. They make up a photographic album of my adult life, which gives me a lot of pleasure as I add each new photo to the collection. I also love the memories they bring back, when I write about them for this blog.

This strip of photos comes from my series Photobooth 45 Year Project. The complete set of posts to date, can be seen in reverse order at the link Photobooth 45 Year Project (Archive) under the Categories heading in the side bar, on the right of this post. I am still adding to this project using mostly digital booths to create the images and have many year’s worth of photos to post before I get up to date.

    It’s great when I look at a photo and think, “I bet these people all have great laughs.” 🙂

    • Cool! That is a wonderful comment Mr O’Mara! I might as well go back to calling you Oglach as Mr O counts well for either moniker. Who knows if O’Mara was a slip of the pen or another pseudonym? You are not going to let on, I’m sure! 😀

  2. We live not too far from Crewe… it’s strange to think you were taking these wonderful, smiley photos so close by! 😀

      • I know :-(. There’s still one in our local shopping centre, although the place is getting a make-over at the moment, so the photo booth might not be there much longer. It makes me think I should go and have some photos taken… 😀

        • Please do! I wish I had taken a lot more when I lived in the UK but I had no inkling they were going to disappear so quickly.
