Magdalene was one of twelve children that Anthony had with his Scottish wife, Isabella. Anthony Lazzaroni was born in Lugga, Italy in 1815 and migrated to Edinburgh around 1840. On the 1851 census he is described as a straw figure maker, and other documents state he produced classical and religious statuary and busts. I presume this explains the pigeon, which was the oddity that caught my eye when I took this!

We’re into the final week, doesn’t time fly during a Squares month. If you have not yet joined in the fun of the Squares Challenge, we are looking for square photographs that are;

  • Differing from the usual or not happening often (ie oddballs, the exceptions and follies)
  • Separated from its set or mate (eg odds and ends or maybe odd socks or shoes)
  • Not divisible exactly by two (ie odd numbers) or the number is unknown (ie 300 odd birds)
  • Or simply something that you find odd, afterall oddness like beauty is in the eye of the beholder
