On My Doorstep

By bwhere

The Telescope

There is a story to this. At a funeral last week I met up with two cousins. One of them presented me with the photo I am holding here (well, a smaller version of it). It is of me over 50 years ago! It isn't in any of the family albums so it was new to me.

I am holding a telescope I bought on a holiday with my parents in Torquay. I vividly remember the shop. I have still got the telescope (and I am holding it here) and the cloth bag that my mother made for me to keep it in.

My mother must have taken this photo while we were holidaying.

Oh, and I've still got the dimples as well, but not the hair!
