Mindin' the wean? Check.
Wearin' yer maw's old shoes? Check.
A faithful four-legged friend? Check.

Scots-Italian photographer Oscar Marzaroli had an uncanny eye for a telling image, and the ability to almost don a cloak of invisibility as he went about his work - meaning ordinary folk, weans, and even daft dogs - were almost oblivious to the man behind the camera.

Snapped in the Gorbals, in 1963, I love the way this canine companion is patiently waiting for these two wee wifies to finish their gabbing.

If things go to plan, I should, hopefully, have some good news about the Marzaroli photographic archive tomorrow.
