SLIDESHOW: Tom forty-fies us with his latest shots

TOM Kirby captured a fantastic set of photographs at this war weekend held recently.

He headed to Pickering, in North Yorkshire, to take photographs of people dressed in costumes of the period.

It is a fantastic selection of 1940s-themed images and our thanks go to Tom for another contribution to our columns.

Tom is a member of Hartlepool Camera Club who lives in Stockton and enjoys all types of photography.

It could be you following in his footsteps by having your work featured in this column.
