Ian as a boy with his cat

Ian as a boy with his cat

This image shows Ian aged twelve-ish with his family’s pet cat Topsy. The cat was a much loved member of our family in the 1960s and 70s and survived several moves of house and the romping of family life. I’m not particularly proud of the hair cut which was only marginally more trendy then than it is now, but at least it was cheap. I remember my mother negotiating with the barber to cut both of her boys’ short back and sides at a discount. Not quite buy-one-get-one-free, but not far off I shouldn’t wonder.

Rosi as a girl with her doll

This image shows Rosi at the age of about five with her favourite doll. Not many pictures of this period survive so this rarity shows her ringlets, lovingly created by he father. He used a method that involved twisting her hair through wet rags and letting it dry to create this masterpiece.
