Somewhere around 1911


Such innocence and stiffness in this engagement photograph!

My grandmother, Dora Sutcliffe, and grandfather Harold Pickles.
It is from her I inherited my widow's peak and, less happily, I have his receding chin and over-prominent nose.

The studio background adds chilliness I think.
