Dawn Parsonage


An Oxford story
my blog

Thanks for popping in!

Based in the historic city of Oxford, amongst the dusty yellow dreaming spires, Dawn Parsonage-Kent always dreamt of the past.

As well as taking her own images she started collecting long lost photographs 20 years ago.

She is fascinated by the unexpected views of the past, something more than the pictures from the seaside and snaps of the new baby. When you see a person smiling at you from over 100 years ago, time seems to contract in a way and all these people in the lacy dresses don't feel so far away.

She particularly enjoys finding whole albums as the images combined create a story.

She now has an extensive collection of 1000's of photographs, with a mix of extraordinary and unexpected glimpses of the past.

She has opened 'Tally Ho! Oxford' as a way to allow others to enjoy the fruits of her years of collecting and to allow these wonderful moments of the past to live on a little longer.

Coverage of Dawns collection:

Any her favorite quote!

Dylan Thomas - The Dicky Bird watching pictures of the dead.
