more tricycles ...

A photo of my Dad on his tricycle back in the early forties! It looks like he still has his school uniform on, he looks very smart I must say.

I love these old black and white photographs. It must have been a lovely sunny day due to your dad squinting and the shadows across his legs. They look like such happy days.

Hi Louise, what a great pic, I had a similar trike, navy blue, but I think mine was a slightly later model :-)

Hi Louise

Isn't it wonderful to have these old family photos?

I don't have any, but I intend to try to track some down, especially now, when I have been contacted by someone through ancestry.com who thinks that there may be a link between us, which she is busy researching.

This is a great photo Louise! It reminds me so much of one of my father on his scooter ~ I must get my old b&Ws scanned, he had a fine head of hair very similar to your father's...don't know what has happened to it today ~ not much to show! LOL Gxx
