Perhaps an answer to the mystery photograph from Sepia Saturday #303, also pictured below.  Cliff was my grandfather M.C. Graham’s play brother and their families first roomed together and after the first children were born, they both occupied a two family flat, 1 family per flat.  Their children were born close together. Looking at the little pal in the first photograph with my grandfather Mershell, I think he could be the child in the other photograph.  He is several years older in the line in the second photo.  His ears in all three pictures bend a bit at the top. Perhaps the woman was his mother, Gwen pictured in the last photo.  Or maybe I need to keep looking for her.
