some old photos

Mum doesnt have many older photos from dads younger days, and has very few photos of her childhood as a family member destroyed many of them years ago.

Last week a cousin gave me a disc for mum with some old family photos on it.There are 2 of dad on there that Ive never seen before, so Im rapt to have them. My dads the 2nd on the left, I havnt ever seen any photos of him at this age, so was a surprise to see this, as he doesnt look anything like I pictured him to at this age.dads on the rightand this one of my grandma.......love the shoesand this one is of a great aunt, although Im not sure who.....but I loved the photo.

Dad looks so different as a little boy! Absolutely love the pics of grandma and the great aunt. They are just classic old black and white pics. So simple but effective!
Love the red dress and the shoes really do standout in both pics!Love the old wall and window frame in the one with grandma. She could be anywhere in the world.....but was probably just in some little country town in South Oz!
