About this memory

Ernest Mobbs (Snr).

“[Picture of my father] taken in store, whilst on his job, by professional photographer. The wee boy is a customer’s child and not known, from the days before toys were so expensive and simpler, when most children had their magic time with glitter and excitement!” – Evelyn Muir (née Mobbs)
