Hang On A Bit, Marie

On the subject of family photographs Marie Kondo says that you should weed out all the ones you think unlikely to interest your kids- and bin them.

And I say the kids can make their own selection. Why should I pre-empt them?

There's this to be considered too- that photographs grow in value as social documents the longer you keep them. My grandparents' Victorian, Edwardian and early Georgian albums fascinate me. I may not care too much about my parents' pictures of holidays they took in the 1990s but my great-grandchildren may well find them wonderfully quaint.
