Movember Ancestors #3: Allan John McDonald

Movember Ancestors #3: Allan John McDonald

For my third Movember Ancestors photo, I’m sharing one of Mr Lonetester’s family photographs. One that I only saw for the very first time a few days ago, as I didn’t even know it existed.

This is a stunning photograph of his great grandparents, Allan John McDonald and Emma Louise Maria Paech.  Both South Australian born, this couple married in 1906 at Murray Bridge in South Australia. It’s a huge photo (over A3 in size), and was obviously in a frame as some time which would have looked beautiful.

As you can see the photograph shows some signs of wear, it is a little torn and scratched – but overall it’s in reasonable condition, and still is an amazing photograph.

And sinc the topic of this post is about the moustaches, check out Allan’s upper lip facial hair. It looks to be a fairly standard “English” style.
