Lining up for Felix

Pam’s Pictorama Photo Post: I guess this camera man gets slapped on the wrist for cutting the top of the one kid’s head off, but everyone having such a good time, why quibble? Felix looks like he just stopped by the house and had his photo with the family out front, in fact that is what seems to have happened. The number down by his foot makes me think this was an itinerant photographer traveling about with Felix in toe, drumming up business in a wealthy neighborhood. It is undeniably British and everyone is nicely dressed without feeling like they have dressed up for it. I love the way the photographer lined them up, ending with jaunty Felix, a smile on his face. He’s a good size – almost as tall as the little girl.

Perhaps this was one of my past lives – wandering the streets and seaside resorts of Britain, Felix and photo postcard camera in tow!

    • Very funny! Yes, I did wonder that at first too especially with the first few cards I bought where he is even larger! Over time I have decided I don’t think so. I do have one post, Felix for a Cause, where it does indeed appear to be someone in a very good costume.

      • Yes, it would have been a very young kid and I don’t think children worked *that* young. Haha! Still, it really does look like someone was in there. It talks of the excellent craftsmanship of the person who made that Felix!
