I have just been told that it is time that I had a blog to entertain you with tales of Walton-on-the-Naze from both the past and the present.
For those of you who don’t know me let me introduce myself:
I’m Pete Frost and I am the webmaster (that sounds good doesn’t it?) for the web site of Putmans Photographers. In actual fact I am Putmans Photographers! There is only me! But I look after the web site which tries to show you a small portion of Putmans’ massive archive of photographs of Walton-on-the-Naze from the distant past up to about 20 -30 years ago. No modern day pictures at the moment, although these could appear in due course as comparative shots to some of the old ones.
If you’ve not already encountered the archive go to http://www.putmans.co.uk/oldwaltonindex.htm but make sure you’ve got an hour or two to look through the many pictures that you will want to.
I am a Walton boy through and through (well, an old boy now) and Walton is very dear to my heart. I have been here, man and boy, for more than sixty years and hopefully I will have a few tales to recount as the weeks go on.
If you find this entry, please give me a comment to encourage me to write on…
