Birthday Photograph: Cowboy (Early 70s)

My older sister originally scanned this negative using a simple piece of white paper and a lamp instead of a scanner so it wasn’t high in quality. I’ve re-scanned the original photograph, but it really isn’t in very good condition. However, this is a classic nortypig portrait taken by my paternal grandmother on (maybe) my 8th birthday… making it (probably) May 1972. Classic double six-guns with the cowboy suit I got for my birthday. My grandmother was a direct descendant of the Watsons of Rockingham Castle, Northamptonshire. As reverends they were first settlers close to where I grew up in Northern Tasmania.

My birthday present was a cowboy suit
