Monochrome Monday - 16th March


For Monochrome Monday yet another relative of my mother - Bert Brundritt.

Again not sure who he was ...


He looks very serious - sitting for a photograph was it seems a very serious affair.

Lovely old photograph. I've never seen an old picture of someone smiling, now you mention it.
