This morning I encountered a snippet in the Guardian newspaper. Art critic Jonathan Jones wrote about Jeann-Marie Donat's collection of old photographs showing at the Arles photography festival this year. I would not normally have been interested in the article, except that I have a picture taken of me, my mother, a toy polar bear cub, and a man dressed in a polar bear costume (looking I must say more authentic than the one in the German photographs!). We were in a park in Aberdeen in 1951 when I was three years old.
More of the German photos like the one above here.
