The Talbot/Collins Photograph Collection: Malvern Hanley Road

This week's blog entry comprises a series of family photographs which have been generously lent to the project by Heather Talbot and Marguerite Collins, two members of the fantastic Malvern History Page on Facebook. Marguerite is the grand-daughter of Tommy Nice, a former soldier who left the army at the end of World War One to become a railway porter at Malvern Hanley Road, a position he held until his death in 1950. Heather's great aunt Alice later married Tommy, at that stage a widower with two sons. These pictures will be added with their full descriptions to the Malvern Hanley Road page, so head over there to see the whole story (this might involve a little scrolling, as that page is getting rather large!). I am deeply indebted to the contributors who make their family photographs available to my project: without their generosity it would be impossible to continue. If you are reading this and have anything of your own which you would like to share, please do not hesitate to contact me in the comments below.
