A couple of weeks before Great Britain marked its entry into the World War 2, Margaret and Denys Gardiner propelled their honeymoon trip around English countryside and managed to save memories through their 35mm camera. It was 75 years later, when couple’s grandson Barney Britton found the lost photographs in his grandma’s attic only to tell the world that, no matter what, vintage gives a fantastical feel.
