Man and Boy

Man and Boy
Taken by my lovely daughter, Isabelle, this super photograph arrived by post on the morning of my 72nd birthday, a wonderful gift!

Here I am, with my grandson, Fred, at Winchcombe station in August, on our way to look at a model railway exhibition, housed in the Royal Mail coach on the left. Although we are separated by 66 years, we are joined by our love of trains! Thank you for a lovely birthday present, Izzy, full of memories!

Incidentally, the phrase "man and boy" in English also means "all one's life", and the picture could just as well have been taken in 1949, - of me with my grandfather !!

Though you were born on November 2 and I on November 1, I forgot to wish you a happy birthday, Mike! I had just seen it on your profile before I discovered this lovely photo.
I was a bit younger than your grandson in 1949, as I was born in 1946. The photo would have been the same in 1949, except for the boy's clothes…

François, thanks for your kind wishes, and accept mine in return! Yes, styles change over the years, - when I was Fred's age it was "culottes courts et de longues chaussettes jusqu'à 10 ans!" Also, my hair would have been much shorter!

Amicalement,
Mike
