"My Aunt Patsy in Kansas City has just sent me this
photo of my mother, aged about 6 or 7, that was taken in the Portobello studio
of Robert McLelland.
My mother was born in 1928, so that would date the
photo to about 1934 or 1935.
It shows another of McLelland's backdrops, and the
most bizarre pony prop I've ever seen. My aunt tells me that my mother had
earlier decided to give herself a haircut, and it certainly shows."
