Margaret and Denys were married in London, England in April 1939, but they waited until August before going on a very unconventional honeymoon. Instead of retiring to a secluded location to enjoy newlywed life, they took a road trip. How cool is that?
A set of incredible photographs taken by a honeymooning couple have come to light: photographs that perfectly capture the calm of a country teetering on the edge of a devastating world war. These honeymoon photos, thought to be lost for the last 75 years, were recently found by the couple's grandson, Barney Britton, while cleaning out their attic. In the 1930's, color film was extremely expensive and not widely used, so these photographs are an extremely rare, valuable, and precious record of an important time in history.
