Harold Grabham.png

Harold Grabham was aged 76 when this photograph was taken. He was born in Dowlish Wake in 1927.

Harold’s father was a carter at Hey Farm and his grandfather a cattle drover. He grew up in Winsham and caught many rabbits. He leaves a very intimate portrait of Winsham seen through the eyes of a young and lively boy!

During the war he went to work in Dennings in Chard and then became a milkman for 30 years. He still lives in Chard and has a passion for model boats. His wife says of him:
"Generally I put up with Harold and all his bits and pieces."
