Per­fect time to see old pic­ture

Let's Talk - - POSTBAG -

My grand­mother is a reg­u­lar reader of Let’s Talk, and al­ways looks at the pho­to­graphs in Kin­dred’s Cor­ner in the hope of spot­ting peo­ple she might know.

So it was par­tic­u­larly poignant that this month’s se­lec­tion (Oc­to­ber) in­cluded a team pho­to­graph of the Or­well Works Foot­ball Team, fea­tur­ing her hus­band, who was the cap­tain in the cen­tre with the ball.

Her hus­band, Pe­ter Catling, passed away at the be­gin­ning of Septem­ber, and our fam­ily had been fondly look­ing through pho­to­graphs, in­clud­ing an orig­i­nal copy of this pho­to­graph.

Thank you for in­clud­ing this pho­to­graph, and what lovely tim­ing to see this great pic­ture just af­ter we had lost a dear hus­band, fa­ther, grand­fa­ther and great-grand­fa­ther.
