Well we're off to see my dear old dad today, so I'm a little short of time - but an easy choice as to whose picture to post. And it seems apt, as my last 2 Sepia Saturday posts have been photos of my gran, his mother + his grandmother and great-grandmother.
Dad has had a rough patch of illness lately, but the doctor acted quickly and he seems to be doing well now - I'm so looking forward to seeing him.
It was my father's family (unlike my mother's) which was the more moneyed and had quite a lot of photos taken and even owned a camera, so theres quite a bit of choice amongst the pictures of him as a child.
Here are a couple of favourites:
Dad - Alan Henry - was born in December 1927, so this was probably taken in 1928 or possibly early 1929.
We still have this little hat - heres my Little Gem wearing it in 1995. I loved those stripey baggy trousers. And she loved that bizarre Richard Scarryesque mushroom house-thing.
The photo below was taken in 1935, when dad was 8
which we know for sure as the photo, which is hand-coloured, is in this presentation folder:
Sorry if it takes me a while to get around to visiting your blogs this weekend, I'll try to get there sooner or later...
