Something romantic happens when flowers and vintage come together – whether it’s old Hollywood glamour or rock festival hippy chic. Spring has hardly sprung yet the city is vibrant with a kaleidoscope of floral colour. Here, we’ve done some colour matching around town. Everything featured is from a local vintage or op shop.
Since it’s 2014, these poppies remind us of all the young men who lost their lives for the cause of freedom between 1914 and 1918. We would like to mention two in particular. Firstly, our second cousin Albert Alfred Sammons who was killed in action on 25 April 1915 while serving with the Royal Fusiliers. Also, Morgan Morris (our great grandfather’s brother) of the 9th Battalion Welsh Regiment. He was 27 years old when he died on 1st February 1917 following an enemy gas attack.
