Old photos and their history

Happy Xmas, Family and Dog in Garden

“Wishing you a very Happy Xmas and a Bright new Year from all

 

W.B.”

This seasons greeting was sent with a photograph of the family. A man and woman sit either side of a girl holding a doll. The two adults are likely husband and wife, with the girl being their daughter. A dog sleeps beneath the man.

If you look closely, you’ll see the woman is wearing a bracelet. It looks like a silver chain bracelet with a heart-shaped padlock. Possibly solid silver.

This may have been a family photograph taken for another occasion. It certainly isn’t festive. Only the girl is raising a smile, the man smokes a cigarette, flowers are in bloom, and there’s no evidence of cold weather. The plant on the bamboo hexagonal table and the woman’s wicker chair gives a more summery vibe.
