A Memory of Abingdon-on-Thames

My mother's ancestors all seemed to live in Abingdon and the surrounding villages of Launton, Kiddlington, Bicester, Charlbury etc. and I am collecting photographic records of these families and their activities for a family tree.  Photos are a good way of recording events.  There are many text genealogical websites, but few, if any where one can get photos of one's ancestors activities.  Where people can give and recieve photos for research.  Villages I've visted when in England seemed to have changed little over time.
