Father by the bridge 15-07-1928.
Photo: Barrie

This photo has a mystery about it insofar that all the years I knew my Father, he never wore a hat. Having looked at the previous photo of the lady who had just got engaged to him neither is she wearing a hat. Another photograph on this same walk that Sunday evening that I will upload in due course taken by Orrell Colleries show the hat again. Where did the hat come from? If you look further behind Father there is a crowd of people walking towards them that didn't show on the previous shot. Now I'm looking for help from the WW people in that can anyone suggest how I can print out negatives using my HP printer & photo paper or does it require a special negative printer. The Negs print onto the photo paper as a image of the neg rather than a photograph.
