Every now and then I pick up old photographs from car boots or charity shops. They are usually pre-1940 and always of people.
These three little boys have been in my possession for a number of years. The photo was taken by E.I. Ellery of Truro, Newquay and Perranporth in Cornwall and the writing on the back says,
Wishing you a Very Happy Xmas
Horace Eugene and Thew(?)
I love that the youngest has his cuddly toy with him
and the eldest looks as though he may have been given his daddy's pocket watch for the occasion. His body language is unmistakably that of the big brother in charge!
What a shame there's no surname to help find out more about them.
I just hope they all made it through the war.
