After the death of his grandmother, Barney Britton found an unexpected treasure. While cleaning out her attic, he found a wooden box filled with dozens of 35mm slides documenting his grandparents’ honeymoon trip in 1939. Most of them were very well-preserved even after decades and multiple house moves. The photos show an exceptional look at England in 1939 just before World War II started.

Britton’s grandparents, Margaret and Denys Gardiner, were married in London in April 1939, but they waited until August to take a honeymoon journey across England. In these vintage photos we see the couple travelling in their in their Morris Eight Convertible and exploring different towns and countrysides. Thanks to these incredible images taken by their cousin Eldred we can see how places have changed over time.
