I have a real fascination with old photos (as you can see on my Bellamy Bird page of this website). I can spend hours looking at black and white photos from the 1930s and 40s on Flickr Commons. I found the above photo during a recent trip to Seattle and I fell in love with the character in each little face. The boy on the far right in the flying helmet should certainly have his own story - as of course he did. To me, it looks as though these children were outside running around when they were corralled to have their picture taken. I can sense their urgency to get back to their game.

Clare grew up in Constable Country not far from East Trimley where Kate Summers and Detective Vicky Allard solve their local mysteries and where The Bellamy Bird is set. Clare lived for many years on a street in Manhattan just like the street where Bella and Felix live although she was never chased through Central Park at night by a couple of failed fashion-world gangsters. Clare now lives on a high cliff next to a lighthouse in Australia where she plots and writes with her faithful chocolate labrador by her side.
