JMBarrie / Re: Original JM Barrie Photograph Archive
« on: December 16, 2018, 05:47:18 AM »
Since a photograph exists of J. M. Barrie at five years old, and his brother David did not die until Barrie was six, and David was their mother's favorite, should there not be pictures of David?  If so, has anyone found any and where might they be seen?  Thank you very much.

That's really interesting.  I guess you know about Harry Potter ripoffs in Russia and China.

Hey...this is me...same person.  I changed my username back when our profiles were all accidentally replaced with others.  Maybe I will take the time to change it back.  Anyhow, Peter Paniddle was one of my favorite Kiddles and I just wondered whether any companies making Pan-based dolls had to pay royalties such as those making movies.  Also how about the many children's book adaptations?  I have several illustrated kids' versions.

I don't see a way to add a picture here but will see if I can add a link to some good images.

Most of what I can find are auctions.  Here is one with some of the better images.  https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vtg-little-liddle-kiddle-3547-1726732994

Davies Family / Re: Davies photo album for sale at Sotheby's
« on: November 28, 2018, 07:32:59 AM »
This is fascinating to learn!  I wonder whether it was really lost and turned up or whether it was hidden for a time?

I spent years trying to locate the photo album of a local family because they lived in a historic home which fascinated me.  I now have some hope that their album, said to have gone to a family member who did not know where it was, may also turn up!

There are only 4 photos extant of Michael dressed as P P, taken at Rustington in 1906. Two of them were in Peter's wife Pee's album (the one that mysteriously went missing after I returned it to Peter's son Rivvy in 1976, but which I had already rephotographed in 35mm), the 3rd was in Nico's album called "Sunny Memories" (the superb one on the cover of my book), and the 4th - of Michael and Barrie together (the photo on this website's homepage) was loose in a box. There may of course have been others, but to the best of my knowledge none have ever surfaced in the 30+ years I've been on the case.

Was the missing album the same one which went up for auction in 2012?  This absolutely must be it, but oddly I can't find any mention of this momentous auction in the forum or elsewhere on this site.

Does anyone know the story behind this?

Sorry I am not back in the forum as the "real me," and no doubt those in charge are all off busy with the Sesquicentennial, but just had to drop in to wish "Uncle Jim" a big One Five Oh!

Thanks Dafydd...I was afraid maybe it was the same lot who vandalized the house.

Bugs and Errors / Has Some Hacker Jammed All co.uk Sites?

Not only am I incognito as my real identity here has been removed and replaced by some impostor,  >:(,* but I can't access the main site--it redirects to some computer sales place!  Other sites ending in co.uk have recently experienced problems as well.
