Looks like he is resting his foot on a Bell & Howell Rural Cinema Projector. Perhaps he thinks he is Geordie from the film of that name, from around about that time.

"Geordie" was one of my favourite films when I was small and I saw it at the rural cinema in the YM in Longhope. I think it was also shown on the very last night of the films being shown there. Everyone had a certain seat that they sat on and Mrs Caithness from down in the village sat in front of us, the old YM was never very warm so she took a hot water bottle with her which you could hear swiltering about as she sat down.

Ok, so is that a skirt he is wearing? Is he modelling something he made using his sewing machine? Was he a tailor? Would be great to work out exactly who he is. If anyone knows please let me know...interested in William Marwicks (ancestors)
