Gt Grandpa Ashby (with Audrey Bull) re-edit - cropped, framed & sepia

I did some restoration work on this photo (the original can be seen in the Flickr album)

This is my Gt Grandfather with his Gt. niece on his knee. She looks about 3, and if so this photo would have been taken c1920. I do not know what uniform Jack is wearing as this is post WW1, and he would have only been around 18. This is 4 years before he was even married to my Gt Grandmother (who by the way was only 17 when she married him and my nan was born almost exactly a year later!).

He is the son of the couple in (and possible taker of ) my last Sepia Saturday photograph.

I think my eldest son bears resemblance to him...

He was an artist & a photographer ~ it seems he passed on some of his creativity! I never met him as he sadly divorced my Gt Grandmother long before I was born.
