About combs2jc

I am a dad first. I am also a writer, artist, submarine vet and adventurous. Most of my writing is non-fiction. I concentrate on memior and history. I also have an annual Christmas book I put out that is free, "Christmas Patrol". "Christmas Patrol" gives vetrans (multiple countries and services) a chance to encourage those men and women currently serving their country during the holidays. My readers have been asking for a website and here it is. Feel free to write, I read everything. Thank You!

Treasure In Your Attic


I have said it before, and I am saying it again.

Always keep your eyes open. You never know what you will find.

I just sat down for a relaxing evening tonight, when I received an email with a photograph attached.

The photograph was found in an attic. It is about 110 years old. A unknown photograph of the RMS Olympic. In the photograph the ship is passing the Isle of Wight. The previous photographs I have seen of Titanic & Olympic passing the Isle of Wight are taken from the Isle of Wight. But this one is taken from the mainland with the Isle of Wight in the background.

I wrote back telling the gentleman what he had and how to properly preserve it.

My point is, always keep your eyes open. If you don’t know what you have, ask someone who does.

This is a never seen photograph. Taken of a well photographed ship, from an unusual view point. It certainly made my day to see it and to tell the owner what he had.

You never know, you might be next. Have a good year everyone, and thank you for your patronage.

(And thank you Bob!)
