The American Couple


It is not just the gentlemen that dress the part at these re-enactments, the ladies bring out the old clothes as well. These two were spotted at Bolton Abbey station during the 1940s Weekend.

very sharply dressed Les
Les Auld: Yes indeed Zed, thanks for the comment.
What a delight to see. Is he wearing an Amercian uniform, Les? Well photographed; very sharp.
Les Auld: There were a few of them about Alan, thanks for the comment.
You really had the chance to capture some great images Les, this is another of them, and to think I passed within a few hundred yards of you last Sunday, and this photographic opportunity.
Les Auld: A missed opportunity I'm afraid Brian, thanks for the comment.
One can feel 1940..looking at these. Nice Les.
Les Auld: Definitely in period Ron, thanks for the comment.
Great stuff Les, there is another one of these at Bury Station next weekend.
Les Auld: Thanks Michael, I will probably will be there on Sunday, the Southport Airshow is also on this weekend so that will be Saturday taken up as well.

I love that hat, it is a work of art. Great photograph too - looks like a film still. Drain the colour, a touch of sepia, and a few wrinkles and it would pass for a period shot.
Les Auld: I did think about doing some B&W work Mike but I liked the colour so much that it did win out. Thanks for the comment.
