This is one of Dad’s pictures. He died over 20 years ago and I still miss him. Photography was his hobby, he developed and printed all his own pictures (I wonder how he would have coped with the digital revolution?) and always in black and white. This is an iconic image to me … it was taken at the Dorset Steam Fair (then held at Stourpaine Bushes) although I can’t remember the year. Many of his pictures are lost now – the prints deteriorated and the negatives destroyed – but I will always have this image in my head as part of my memories of him.
