Richard Burton drinking with his father, Richard Walter Jenkins, and brother in the Miners Arms, Pont-rhyd-y-fen, Wales, 1953
Have family reunions. There is something magic about the common sense of a blood bond. It’s not less magic for black, white, brown or polka dot. The reunion gives a sense that the family cares about itself and is proud of itself. And there is the assumption that you, the family member, are obligated to reflect this pride and, if possible, add to it.
― Alex Haley
Richard drinking with his father and brother, Ifor, in 1953. One of the few surviving photos of this era in his life.
Funny what you find while stumbling around online looking for something else altogether! I haven’t seen this photos for years and now you’ve started me off on a trip down memory lane. I’ll be going up into the attic later to see what other goodies I can find!
Nice post Berfois, thanks.
