Photography is a great way to document our ancestors and to learn more about who they are, even just from their portraits.
Since the late-19th century, photography has become much more accessible and affordable for middle class families, yet taking a photo back then was a very different experience from today's.
Two centuries ago, there were no “instant” photos. Those posing for photographs had to remain in position - patiently - for five minutes to get the perfect image.

For over a year, the Bristol Airport staff has been searching for Glyn’s owner.
Glyn, a 100-year-old teddy bear, was found in a bag along with a photograph dated 1918, where he appears with two young girls.
The staff is looking for clues to help find Glyn’s owner or the descendants of Dora and Sonia. Currently, the closest they've come in their search is to look for a Sonnie and Dora, who wrote a note on the photo's back.
