When patients were committed to the Willard Asylum for the Insane in Upstate New York, they arrived with a suitcase packed with all of the possessions they thought they needed for their time inside.

Most never left. The mental hospital had an average stay of nearly 30 years. When patients died, they were buried in nameless graves across the street of the asylum. Their suitcases, with all their worldly possessions, were locked in an attic and forgotten.

In 1995, an employee of the mental hospital discovered the suitcases, 400 of them. They date from 1910 to 1960.

'The overwhelming thing that I take from it is is it’s all personal. I can look at the objects in these cases and get a strong idea of what the people who owned them was like,' Mr Crispin said.

Thus far, he has photographed 80 of the suitcases.

New York state law prohibits Mr Crispin from matching the hospital records with the suitcases to tell the more complete story of patients.
They could be committed for any number of reasons. Epilepsy - having seizures - was grounds for lifelong commitment. Young women who were promiscuous, gays and lesbians and mothers who couldn't get over the grief of losing a child in three months or less could all be...

Various shots of the Ideal Home Exhibition. A middle-aged couple walk across a water garden on stepping stones, with fountains playing either side, to reach a house exhibit. People wander about and look at the displays. Some of the house exhibits are quite exotic - one is a Chinese pagoda.

People walk past other exotic 'fiesta' displays as they make their way through the exhibition area. People sit down for a rest beside a fountain with plastic sea horses moving round it.

Turning the pages of an old family photo album can be quite embarrassing at times. It can spawn thoughts like, “Why did I ever think that crimping my hair was cool?” and “Whoa! Look at those curly mustaches!” Well, you’re not alone in thinking your family is weird, crazy or goofy — we all feel that way from time to time! And if you ever thought your family looked especially odd in old family photos, I’ve found awkward vintage family portraits that will make your own family seem (fairly)normal!

Construction of show home at Ideal Home Exhibition at Kensington Olympia, London.
One of fourteen designs in the young Elizabethan range of homes by Kingsberry Homes Ltd
Crane, Frederick Attwood written on the side, outside the Olympia Exhibition halls, lifts it lever. Large low loader park in the street outside the hall, men take off the sheets. Man winds up a rope. The team watch. The lorry slides the bungalow off the top frame. The crane holds the top frame. Two men work a jack, it lifts him off the floor. Inside the hall, the crane moves the frame next to a plinth of brick. The bungalow is swung into position and lowered onto the plinth. A concrete mixer, men work on the plinth once the bungalow is positioned.
It is an outstandingly drab modular building, flat fronted, unremittingly boxy. Brick laying teams and cement mixer. A side panel is carried in and fixed. The whole exterior of the box is bricked up the facades forming a brick skin. The roof is assembled. Timber roof trusses are put in place on the pitched roof. Sales executives shake hands. A roofer felts and battens. Roofers at work, sawing and nailing. Roofers run up ladders with tiles on their heads.
The roof is tiled, the box is now looking a lot better (it couldn't have looked worse !)...

The Queen quips joke about The Donald and his helicopter

'Sounds like President Trump!' The Queen jokes about US leader as a helicopter interrupts as it flies over in rare candid footage from her ITV interview with Sir David Attenborough

Sharing a laugh as they chat, they are two much-loved evergreens of British life.
So when it comes to getting the Queen to open up about her passion for the environment, broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough is the perfect choice.
The pair, both a youthful 91, strolled through the gardens of Buckingham Palace for an ITV documentary, The Queen's Green Planet.
The Queen, who reportedly ordered staff to cut the use of plastic after watching Sir David's Blue Planet II series on the threat to our oceans, seems at ease in his company.
At one point the pair are interrupted by the sound of a helicopter. Irritated, the Queen remarks: 'Why do they always go round and round when you want to talk? Sounds like President Trump, or President Obama.'
