During the day, Ben Sansum is a busy jet-setter who works as a cabin crewman for British Airways.
But when the working day is done, he leaves our hectic, modern world and steps back into the 1940s. And as you can see from his vintage-inspired home, living the simple life is not so simple these days.
The 35-year-old Sansum says that from an early age he was interested in the past. His great-uncle once gave him a 1940s radio as a birthday present, and his first car was an antique from 1939. His parents never understood their son's obsession for a time before he was even born, but Sansum says they've learned to accept it.
“My parents probably thought I would grow out of it, but I know I will always live like this now. I shall probably die living like this." But despite admitting his interest is "strange," Sansum also tells his parents that he's "ensuring their way of life isn't forgotten."
But of course, living in a time before our many modern conveniences were invented is tough. Sansum does all his cooking on a restored, 120-year-old cooking range. And while he has managed without a dishwasher or a microwave, he caved and bought a modern mini fridge
Still, if you remember an older relative's home from this era (or your own childhood home) the rest of Sansum's house is a treasure trove of memories.
