History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

Thank you for always fully captioning the images themselves - if I save them with the original name I don't later have the "What is this 'jc06' photo? What is it showing? What year is it?" experience while going through my image folder :D .

Ha, awesome! I like to have that context too. Though sometimes, if they're all the same place/year/subject/source, I'm lazy. :P

I have a recommendation for you! You're missing the best photo taken from after World War Two. You must look up a photo from the Australian War Memorial. It's a photo of an Australian soldier arriving in Sydney, meeting his girlfriend on arrival. It is dated 1946. And is referenced as "AWM 125153", the link is https://cas.awm.gov.au/item/125153

The quality is not as good on that site though, I've seen a larger photo and it is incredible.

Haven't run into a single 'lazy' moment yet :D .

Thanks so much, lovely photo, I'll include that in my next wartime love post! :)

(and oh, you'll run into some :) ).

Yes, in former days after the world war 2 everywhere the posters of world war 2 have been posted to explain for the people that world war is not a simple war which ends in 1 day or 2-3 days.The passion of former days will never forget.
