#52ancestors: Favourite photo

Me 1964?

In today’s world it seems unthinkable not to have lots of photos of your children. In the 60s, it was very different, at least in my family.

When I was growing up, my family moved around a lot and my parents didn’t think it was important to keep photos. The only pictures I had of me as a child were school pictures. There were no baby pictures.

A few years ago, my uncle moved house and sent me lots of family photos including the one above. This is one of my favourites, taken in New York in about 1964.
