My name is Chris and I took hardly any of the photographs you will see in this site.
The purpose of WDEOD is to enable anyone to see photographs taken by a lady named Doris Shipway (1918 – 2014).
Doris enjoyed travelling and photographing her trips. She (mostly) used good quality photographic slides and had Pentax and Nikon cameras.
When she died, she left about 50 years worth of slides and various related documents. These all were destined for the skip, so we agreed to take them.
Our idea was to pass them on immediately to a society or museum, but initial inquiries did not find anyone willing to have them.
I therefore decided to organise, scan and publish them myself.
A couple of years, and scanners, later, I have ~30,000 photo files, little yellow Kodak and green Fujifilm boxes everywhere and a wardrobe full of boxes that my wife would much rather house her winter wear.
I hope you enjoy them.
