I connected with my half-brother a few years ago over the internet. I had not met him before, even though I had learned of his existence when a young adult. Now we send messages to one another from time to time and, a couple of weeks ago, he sent me a picture of our dad – a picture that had been given to him by one of his cousins.
I had seen pictures of my dad at this age before in family groups but not a close up. It was strange to see this photo as my memory of him is always of when he was older. The next time I visit South Africa, I will need to check whether my uncle has any more of these treasures put away in a cardboard box.
Do you have any old photos of your dad?
