When hunting for that perfect birthday card, Charlotte Robertson ran across a lost family photo of her father, Edward, taken more than 40 years ago when he was just three years old:
His GP parents, Margaret and Douglas, had commissioned John Doidge(corr) to produce a set of pictures of their son which they could hand out to relatives.
For a joke, the photographer asked the toddler to put on his mum's sunglasses and don an Austrian hat with a feather. He also got the cheeky youngster to pick his nose.
Yesterday Mr Robertson told how his parents ordered a set of pictures from the photographer, but rejected the nose-picking shot - because they thought it was tasteless.
The image only surfaced when Mr Doidge died, and card publishers Statics bought the copyright to the shot from his widow, Anne.
