1605298 : Good Golly Miss Molly

A unknown small child seated with a large rubber ball - the kind that I remember from my own childhood twenty-fives years after the picture was taken. There is a studio stamp on the print - "Molly Forgan, Perth" and a date on the back of the print : "Taken 4th April 1926". Various Perth directories list Miss Molly R Forgan and the owner of a photographic studio on Tay Street in Perth and she certainly was active in the period this photograph was taken (she died aged over 90 in 1975!). By golly, it really is an exceptionally good portrait.
