We use a lot of photos and objects to prompt conversation and reminiscence. Whatever the age of the participants visual prompts can be useful, and it can be particularly helpful when someone has problems with their memory. We've started out own collection of reminiscence resources and will be sharing them on-line via our flickr site http://www.flickr.com/photos/arthur-and-martha/

The first contributions to the collection (a few shown here) come from Walter Mabey, a regular participant in our Making Memories project, Oldham. Thanks again to Walter for letting us use and share these images.
