As we were

Sorting things out for the Turn The Page book fair - now some weeks ago! - made me realise I'd not produced any books since "The Seeing I" (aka Three Generations), quite a few months ago. Which got me back to thinking about this matter of "who was that person in the photograph" - especially as some old family photos serendipitously surfaced, some of them evocatively faded -
Brother Steve in his first self-built boat
My first car (a photo that survived the house fire - only just)
Brother and me with cousin Martin, in the house that burned down a decade or so later
The Oma and Opa of the cousins
Their son Paul (later the father of Martin), leaving Gersfeld for Canada - whereby hangs a tale...
