  1. Thanks πŸ™‚ I don’t know much about him, but apparently there is a recording of his daughter talking about him somewhere. I must get hold of it and listen.

  2. I think he has a very gentle look about him; a look of kindness in his eyes. You really do have some most fascinating family members. I am intrigued to find more out about this one!
    I hope you are ok.

    • Hi Karen; great to hear from you. He does look very gentle. I don’t know much about him as he’s my partner’s great grandfather. I do know his wife left him with four children and he raised them alone. She apparently lived somewhere nearby with her common-law husband, whom she married when August died. It’s a story I’d like to know much more about. πŸ™‚

    • That is so true Emilio. I’ve noticed the full-face-fuzz look coming back in fashion advertising (at least in NZ). Weird!
