PERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF DAVID WEBB (Supplementary)

The photographs on this page were delivered to me by Goodman on April 2, 2015; they nearly slipped through the net, and were in a tin labelled thus:

VERY OLD,
VERY SMALL
SNAPSHOTS.

I have put them in chronological order as best I can, but there will be many that are totally out of order. Like me! Seriously, I am a terrible judge of ages. There is also some duplication; for example, this photograph of a young Webb sitting on a giant snowball or something of that nature is a duplicate or near duplicate of this one on the main photo page. I have removed a number of duplicates but have decided after some consideration to allow some of them to ride. For example, the photo captioned here “Cheers! Paddy” is already on the main photo page but in my humble opinion, the one here is a slightly better copy/duplicate/scan or whatever. The photo captioned “Love Mother” can also be found on the main photo page captioned “Mother - 1940s?” - that one is torn.

Update, December 25, 2015: On May 20 and October 14, 2015, Goodman delivered inter alia yet more photographs from the Webb collection to me. Some had been scanned before; some had not. Some were duplicates; some were not. One hundred and fifty of these (excluding where the obverse too has been scanned) have been added to this page today. They are enumerated webb_photos_oct_1.jpg to webb_photos_oct_150.jpg. I have removed as many duplicates as I can; I have held back another twenty or so which will be added probably early next year when I will have had time to scan for and remove further duplicates. They will be sorted into chronological order as far as possible when time permits.

Update June 25, 2016: Goodman delivered various photos to me at intervals up to and including this year. Many of them were duplicates, either photos I had scanned already that had got mixed in or other copies of the same photos. Although he has a lot more space than me, he still has storage problems.

I think I have now scanned all the relevant photos, and will hopefully be adding them all this year. I apologise for any duplicates that may have been missed. I will weed these if any as noticed. Some of these photos may indeed probably will be moved, either to the main page or elsewhere on this page as they are sorted (as best I can manage) in chronological order.
