how many people write under the pictures,who,where and what the subjects are. As i work in a residential home,we see many photo albums but, due to people having short term memory loss,they cannot often remember who the people in the pictures are,and the pictures are often to old for the relatives to remember either,would be nice if we wrote names of people,places and events under our pictures for the future i think,anyone got any views?

it might seem like that now,but will mean loads more in the future,was thinking of starting it myself with mine,just wondered if anyone was else did it,its sad to think all the memories fade,the pictures end up meaningless a lot of the time

Theres few old family photos i saw at my parents place & they cant recall who/what relation they were & it is shame, more so with the sepia ones as they seem more poignant.

yep,there must be thousands of albums filled with nameless faces,particularly from the 1940's and sfter the war,those people would have meant so much to the ones taking the pictures,but they mean nothing to anyone anymore,very sad

~~~Secret Red ^^ Squirrel~~~ **007 1/2** Report 6 Jul 2008 18:07're so right. I've got lovely photographs of relatives and I don't know who they are.

I have stared to label my photos. Who is on the photo, when it was taken (the date if I know, or just the year) and where it was taken. Loose photos have a label on the back and photos in albums have labels under or at the side.
