I saw this in the theater in 1970-I was 8 years old and I was estatic!

After 36 years of collecting images from landfills while on the job as a Sussex dustman (that’s a garbage collector to us American English speakers), Bob Smethurst has one of the largest single collections of images from World War I of anyone in the world.
Smethurst gathered most of the more than 5,000 photographs and pieces of history he’s now in possession of throughout the 1970s and 80s. Unable to stand the thought that these moments would be destroyed, Smethurst started collecting the photographs and memorabilia as soldiers from the war grew old and passed away, their belongings often being thrown out.
From letters sent to the front lines to horrific photographs of the horror seen in the trenches, Smethurst’s collection is vast, depicting first-hand accounts of the war.
