Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces..III


An old photo of faces that have been keeping me very busy the last few days.  Organising the family history is hectic and I have been knee deep in information and images.  I decided to add one of these images to the Weekly Photo Challenge experience.

Happy Fighting Faces

Lawrence Peters and Ellie BennettLawrence Peters and Ellie Bennett… Lawrence laughed when Ellie said, “How about a pot of beer”. 

This is my uncle in the black shorts and he died in the boxing ring in 1951 during a fight at Festival Hall in Brisbane Australia. He was 22 years old.  The fight was broadcast live over the radio.  My grandparents were ringside.  He had Pneumonia.  He was pronounced fit to fight.  Two very proud Australian men with awesome faces.
PS.. the Typhoon pingback isn’t photo challenge but all should read.
