Beside the Sea

On beach with Grandfather (Lucy)

September 17th marked the 96th year of my mother, Winifred Bradley’s birth. So this week’s picture is of her and my great-grandfather, George Herbert Lucy.

I’m not sure where it was taken, but mum often spoke about her grandfather and his stick and bowler hat, both seen in the picture.

I love the contrast in the photo between the informality of the setting, and the formality and seriousness of George Lucy. They took their pleasure seriously in those days.

Anyway, happy birthday mum, and I hope you all enjoy the picture.
