Our family lived in Bridge Street Hamlet, which was just a mile or two north of Long Melford in Suffolk, England – famous for its top quality antique shops – this is one of Long Melford’s many historic homes.
We used to visit Long Melford to stroll along its main street, look at its quaint historic buildings, and to visit its many excellent antique shops – even if we were only ‘window shopping.’
My wife and I have always liked both antiques and period buildings, so on this occasion I brought my camera to take a few pictures of them as they might have looked many years ago.

I took this photo of Cavendish’s War Memorial on the village green – Cavendish is west of Long Melford on the A1092 highway – also called the Melford Road.

This is a view of St. Mary’s Church in Cavendish, with its distinctive castle-like bell tower – on a simply beautiful day in Suffolk, England.
I took this photo of David back home in Bridge Street Hamlet on one Sunday morning before Mass – he was growing up very quickly and becoming a fine young man.
