Neat as a pin – Kate

This is my Dad all ready for his first communion. The majority of the photographs we have look like this, he was always so clean looking. The reality was much different and it must have driven my Grandmother mad. She was always telling me as a child how important cleanliness is. It must have been a constant effort with Dad because he was a typical boy really,skinned knees, bruises, grubby face and hands and a plaster holding together his glasses where they had snapped in the middle.
