Milton Keynes Slides

Below is a selection of found photographic slides taken from a stack found by the father of project supporter Helen Ketley. Helen’s father purchased what he thought was an empty box (to store his watch collection) at a car boot sale at the Milton Keynes bowl and was surprised to find some slides within. The slides themselves date back to the mid-late 1970s and in to the 1980s.

At the moment I do not know if the family in the slides is/was from the Milton Keynes area. I know nothing about the family other than what is written on the slides; this I’ve replicated in the photo titles along with Location Unknown and the date (if known).

Update: (5/2/15) I’ve scanned about 50 of the 100 or so slides in and from information written on the slides, we know that the dad is called Angus, the mum, Madeleine and the two children Amy (the elder of the two) and Elinor. Both the girls were born in the mid 1970s.
