My Dad and his Father's Watch

Hans Bax

Gouda, Netherlands

Artist's Description

In our kitchen, an old oaken shuffle-board, handmade by Grandpa, is hanging on the wall.
This shuffle-board is so old that it no longer can be used to play the game.
So, what to do with it? We have hung the shuffle-board on the wall with family photos of four generations in it.

On this image my father in his early twenties and the watch, that his father got on his 21st birthday in 1920 from his father. The watch is now mine but doesn’t work anymore and is also to be seen on the shuffle-board.
Dedicated to my father – the 27th of April he would have become 90 years of age.
