Richard and Margaret


This photo was taken of my grandparents during their summer vacation in July 1953.

They were on a beach in Tramore, which is a small town on the south east coast of Ireland.  I love this photo both for the subjects in it as well as the quality of the image.

Professional photographers would regularly take photos of people and you could choose to then to buy the photo if you liked the end result. My grandparents must have like this one!

Unfortunately I never knew my grandfather but I knew Nana well and she lived in excellent health until she was ninety-two. I put it down to her excellent diet and the odd glass of sherry!
