An Old Photo


I found this old photo one day when I was going through the box of photos I got from my mums house when she passed. There is just  something about this photo I cant seem to let go of, could it be its old and in good shape as I do love old photos , could it be cause it is a relative when very young or could it be the dog in the photo is a Wheaten Terrier mix  and looks a lot like our Miggy.

I’m really not  sure as to whom this is but I think I remember my mum telling me it may be her little brother my Uncle Eric. My uncle Eric and family lived in Scotland and he worked on the oil rigs off the coast of Scotland for over 35 years. I have lots of old photos of the family some I have posted on here and some I haven't cause I don't exactly  know who they are.  I do like old photos they seem to tell me  a story and the history of them.

                                        Until next time , Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Hi Elaine....Oh yes it does look like Miggy!!
What an adorable little boy and cutest dog! I like how the little boy has his hand stuck inside the belt of his sweater.. so cute!!
I love old picture like that to and when I see one in a antique store or thrift store I always wonder who's family would throw them away, and what treasure they would hold for generation to come!!
I think it is sad!!

Oooh that does look like Miggy!... I never part with old photos even if I don't know who they are... infact, oft times I buy old photos at estate sales when I see careless people just tossing them about as if they were junk... that really bothers me, so I end up buying them and they become part of my "family"... xoxo Julie Marie

Oooh, what a great photo! The dog is so cute and the little boy, what a perfect match? I can just imagine the fun times these two had throwing and fetching!

That is a great photo! And it does look like Miggy! You are so lucky to have old family photos. I don't have that many of family...that's why I give a home to those photos that don't have a "family" anymore. Don't let go of those photos - you're holding a part of your family's history!

That dog looks an awfully lot like Miggy! What a co-inky-dink! I love this old photo! That sweater your Uncle is wearing is sure snazzy!
