My first SepiaSaturday – a great idea and I’ll try to do more of these.
Dad has been digitising their extensive old photo collection for a few years and I spent a lot of the Christmas period at their place with my new Flip-Pal scanning some more.
My grandfather, John Raikes GARRETT (1908-1992) loved the beach.
He often talked fondly about his family’s beach shack at Black Rock in Victoria.
Here are a couple of shots of him:
One as a dashing 20ish year old, not at the beach but wearing what I assume is his bathing costume (well, I hope it is).
The second is in very different attire – a suit! Playing with his daughters at the beach.
