Rock-A-Bye Baby

I'm still restoring images of my childhood, although I'm not convinced this is the right word. Is it "restoring" when the new image looks better than the original ever did? Perhaps "reinventing" or "reinterpretting" are better choices.

This is me at 11 months in March 1974. How do I know? Back then, labs conveniently printed the month and year on the reverse of photographs.

It's amazing how much this looks like the adult me — the same coloured hair, the same big ears and the same dimples. Looking at these images fills me with such nostalgic joy.

To think I've been fond of vintage images for so long and all the while perfect examples were tucked away in my own photo album!

Maybe it is called "refurbishing"?
