The Rowden Gallery picturing the past...
Family photographs often bring an enchanting connection with the past, often recalling wonderful memories. Photos taken before we were born provide us with an insight into the distant past - maybe we notice a family likeness in a face, a smile, in someone's eyes or in a poise. Some images can also show us the places where people lived, maybe the villages or towns where they grew up.
In these galleries images are grouped on a family page by sept. Each image is presented as a thumbnail - click on this for the larger picture. Clicking on the name will take you to the individual's pedigree entry if available. Septs with a large numbers of images are subgrouped into albums. Each album relates to a family group within the sept.
I am grateful to a growing number of people have been sending in pictures for the galleries and the new format makes it is easier for me to add images quickly. Please note the numbered link in square brackets showing those who have supplied images. Contact them directly if you wish to obtain a copy of the photo.
I am always pleased to receive new images or photos for the gallery. However to maintain a good standard of presentation for the website I would be grateful if, before you submit an image, you would consider the following:
- The image should be scanned at a good resolution.
- The image should be of a reasonable scan size - ideally 1000px or more on the smallest edge.
- Image damage such as foxing, tearing or colour fade can be edited electronically but poor image quality is difficult to remedy.
- It is helpful to include brief information about the persons in the image and their connection in Rowden families or sept.
Looking forward to expanding the gallery. Click here to submit.
