Below are a number of photos of Bernard Kelly (1907-1958), courtesy of his family. Top left is one of his last photos with his wife, below which is a photo of myself with his eldest daughter, Barbara (sometime in the 90s in Wales). She is also in the picture to the right as a child in her father’s arms. The two group photos show Kelly with Angus Macnab and William Stoddart in the mid 1950s. One photo shows a small exhibition of Kelly’s sculptures.
