My Dad

I was looking through some of my parents old photo albums the other day, when I came across some colour negatives. This was really quite amazing, as mostly they destroyed all negatives. So John took them down to Max Spielman in Richmond Street, and they put them onto CD for us. There are a number of pictures of interiors of the house they lived in before moving to the flat (the calender in the kitchen says June 1985), and several of the girls.

And two really super photos of Dad. This one is the nicest one of him that I've seen - you can see the twinkle in his eyes.

Proud Grandpa

Oh Maggie what a lovely image and what a wonderful man your Dad was, the twinkle in his eyes is their for sure and the smile shows a kind, caring and gentle man.

So pleased you found the negatives and got to keep this image of your Dad.

My thoughts and love to you and yours {{HUGS}}
