The Curglasson man spends a lot of time sourcing old photographs relating to royalty, many of which boast intricate details.

‘I bought a lot of items online,” said Robin. “And as well as that I got some of the photographs from people in Cookstown and Dungannon. Some of them are really rare.

“The photographs show you a lot of detail back then because they were such high quality, but nowadays we see the Royal Family on television, so there isn’t as much of an interest in collecting things like postcards,” he told the MAIL.
