Quotations Picture Book

This is a photo of my dad, his first wife Cicely May Quinn and their eldest, Phyllis; outside their first home in Lewisham, South London. I have often wondered how this picture came to be taken, with Dad in his braces. Last year my cousin Janet told me that Uncle Bob remembered that Dad was often employed as an extra in movies around London in the 1930s.
