A Better Day: A Picture Diary of Present and Past

60.00 BBD

A photo diary of present and past I suppose they were looking for a BETTER DAY when my small ancesteral family left for Barbados in 1885. As a photographer I am interested in old family photographs. And when I realized that the small boy standing by his father side in the picture that sparked this story was the same person I knew as my great-grandfather, I got very curious.

He was still little when he died in 1965, but no longer a boy. He had seen other days, other places, he was full of stories. His mother had died during their stay in Barbados. According to family lore, she fell down the stairs in their house. I wondered; what stairs, where was Barbados, and why did they leave Norway to live on an island far away ?
