A few days ago a friend dropped in with an old photograph she needed to scan; she had bought it from a woman in Havana last month who sold it to her on the street for a dollar. It reminded me of a very old picture I have of my (great?) great grandparents, posing for a portrait before being presented to the Queen. Why they were being presented to the Queen I have no idea (Mum, do you know?) but the photograph itself - ragged and yellowed with age - is really something.
I searched my mac for this and several other family pictures I know I've scanned, but they must be on a hard drive at home. I did find these, mostly of my mother and myself; though not quite as aged, they've satisfied tonight's burning need for 'old family stuff'. And seeing that I'm about to turn fdzxhcfzjhdx years old in a couple of weeks, these must be able to pass for ancient documents right?
(The last two won't quite pass for childhood pics but they were in the folder and I like them)
