1979. Are they brother and sister? He’s dressed up as an altar boy or a chorister. Her pretty dress suggests some kind of special occasion. Given the setting and the colour of her dress, could it be a funeral? Whatever the subject/occasion, this is a nice example of the romantic shots that Parks is taking in the late-1970s and into the 1980s. The photo is inscribed in the lower border “To Willie” and signed “Norman Parkinson 79.”
