    Wink The Teddy Bear Hunters House - March 2018


    The Teddy Bear Hunters House




    So this place has been on my hard drive for sometime, cant say I was really bothered about posting it as most houses where being done rather quickly and uploaded right away, that isn't me and I love having a backlog so until I get to double figures I then decide to upload places, lately I have been busy and alas here we have another post.

    It was posted before under a different name, think the original poster saw this in better glory, I went shortly after and found so much stuff left behind, it was a rather mess to be honest but still you found out more details on the people who lived here, I am unsure if the house still stands and I am sure if it does its been wrecked.

    The house was beyond what I expected to be honest, after seeing the usual shots, I was taken back by how much people had missed and not bothered to photograph or just avoided it completely, me I like photographing letters and photos and really narrowing down on some personal details, even if I dont share it completely it tells more of a story than just "another house" while remaining with the usual "oh it was left" story, the photographs here are caught my attention more, therefore I have included a fair amount.

    Well the bear stuff found in the living room, from magazine articles to photographs of the very woman who once lived here, either into art and the vintage things in life, or had a soft spot for so many collectibles it was unreal, but teddy bears was her thing. Looking past the globes, maps, passports it was clear the owners was onto something, an the woman in question used to own a vintage bear shop, so no wonder she was in so many magazines and proof copies I found... Sadly no one has seen her for a few years.

    Amazing what you find out.


    Well anyway I was rather fond of this place, so decided to really do it justice and put more effort into it, so on with the photos.


















































































    Cheers for looking an hope you enjoyed my take on this place :)

    It's funny the memories things can provoke isn't it? My granddad used to have a light like that with the red on top.

    One of the first 'motorist's lanterns', the red top warning light could be set to flash. Ray-O-Vac, Ever Ready and Pifco were the market leaders from memory - Pifco produced a rather up market version in alloy and the other two were tin plate. I think this is the one produced by Ray-O-Vac.

    Very nice set of images Mockingbird. The real story here is your image of the 'Naturalisation Certificate' and the April 1964 date. Very stressful times back then for some people!

    Nice photographs. They tell a tale of a once happy house, going by the personal photographs.

    As u may know Mockingbird its now gone! benn flattened into its own swimming pool.
    The large barn, caravan & car remain still full of stuff but I cant imagine for very long.

    You are right there was an overwhelming amount of stuff there, it sometimes hard to capture the "full story" when theres that much, I should think I came away with 200-300 images.
    I spent a particularly long time leafing through photo albums which were very personal.
    Nicely captured btw

    indeed, it can often take you back to places we had often forgot :)
