Fave Piece of Content
So many gems have gone up on the site this week. So it’s been a real challenge choosing only a few faves to feature in the blog this week. Beki Almozlinos has stolen the place for Fave Piece of Content. This photo screams style – and makes me want a new hat or two. Beki Almozlinos (how amazing is her name?) and friends standing by the Monument to the Republic, Istanbul. Beki is on the right, an still living today in 2012 in a care home in Israel. Wonder if she still owns the hat? Photo shared by sephardimizrahicaucus which is the Historypin account of the Sephardi Mizrahi Studies Caucus of the Association for Jewish Studies.

Fave Story of the Week
Last week I featured a story from Parsonago of her fun memories on holiday in Weymouth. This week however isn’t the case. Our Awful Holiday shared by Susanhills1909 tells a tale of her holiday to Norfolk in 1970. Cold, bad food and her poor brother hospitalised what a holiday eh? Have any holiday stories yourself – good or bad then do share.
Pinner of the Week
#PINNEROFTHEWEEK is awarded to fujifulgueras for their wide variety of photos documenting New London, Connecticut. Allen Hook & Ladder CO photo above, works unbelievably well on Street View as the fire station is completely the same 70 odd years later. When you fade the photo on Street View you can see a modern fire engine pulling out of the fire station. Another great upload from fujifulgueras longest draw bridge in the world a 1908 colour postcard of the Groton Bridge in New London, Connecticut. See fujifulgueras full profile here.
