Jack Bulpin: 1916 - 1998. This was my grandfather when he was 24 (younger than I am now!), at the period this photo was taken (1940) he would have been working at a paper mill as a crane operator in Watchet (Southwest England). This was a few years before he was drafted in to the army where he built roads in India until 1946. My mum was born in 1947 =). I have fond memories of Jack from my childhood, he was a great man with a shining character and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. Since getting my scanner I asked my parents for all the old film negatives they could find. This is the only surviving negative image (strip of one!) from my grandparents. This image was taken by his wife (otherwise known to me as 'Nan' who is still going strong aged 91 this August). I'm afraid I don't know what camera this was taken on so I apologize for posting here not knowing if it was indeed a Nikon... It could have been. I have only done a bit of cleanup to this, the negative had been very well preserved (Scanned on an Epson V700). Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available) See larger version here.
