A Photo a Week Challenge: Grandparents

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Grandparents.

I talked about my maternal grandfather a little in a previous post. He was a lenghtsman, responsible for maintaining a length of road for the local council.

This is Freddy, my maternal grandfather photographed in the 1970s. Everyone called him Freddy, I can’t remember his given name but don’t think it was Frederick. He was one of nine brothers and sisters, none of whom went by their given names if I recall correctly.

He had retired when this photo was taken but was out with his brush sweeping the snow and ice from the path. The tobacco pipe was a regular feature and the hearing aid was from an accident when training with the Home Guard during the Second World War.

My maternal grandfather.
