Podcast: Play in new window
Family albums, photos pressed between the pages of a second-hand book, a photo on a postcard, a greying, dog eared picture on Tumblr.
Old pictures are full of stories. They’re a window into another world, expressions frozen on faces, clothes just as they were.
What can they show us? And what are they hiding?

We Were Always Here
John Ebert regularly posts vintage photos of gay couples on Twitter. Some photos are from as much as 100 years ago. He tags them with #wewerealwayshere. He says they were able to be taken as part of a gay underground that operated in those early times.

No one expects a box of tapes to explain the story behind a strangely posed photo of the grandparents.
But when he was looking through old family photographs, producer David Ross found a cassette made between his mum and her mum more than 20 years ago, where they talked about where his mum was born and why she came to be there.
It talks about a rather forgotten episode in the post-war centrifugal destruction of the British empire, as its long oppressed components spun off.
