a poetical response following close observation: pebbles for rivers of stones
Oh well done. I have a few photos of my 'great-grands' but I can't work out who's who.I love the look of the dapper guy with the bow tie. He looks almost like he's been added in because he seems much more modern than the others. I know I have just read a book about time travel but he puts me in mind of Henry DeTamble slipping back to see some of his ancestors.
The dapper guy - Harry, Tom and Sarah's eldest son - had recently returned from America, where he had been working as an engineer for a couple of years, and had visited his farming brothers in Canada before coming home, so you could say he'd been modernised!In fact, he reminds me a lot of my elder son who also closely resembles Louis Theroux ...
That trans-Atlantic influence definitely shows. In 1905 my grandfather (dad's side) and his parents were in the States too. In fact he was born out there. I wonder if that's why he looks so much more up-to-date than my other grandad in the inchie. Both those photos were taken in the very early 30s though.
