Well, there couldn’t really be any other ‘Image of the Week’ in the Week we remember the anniversary of the birth of our beloved Oliver Norvell ‘Babe’ Hardy on 18 January 1892. So let’s celebrate the great man with a brief look back at a number of images captured throughout his career.
It was really difficult to select a series of images to reflect the esteem in which Babe is held, so there just a few here taken at times that touch on specific points in his career. In case you’re wondering then why the ‘Golf’ image is there; well, Stan used Babe’s passion for golf in capturing some of his wonderful frustrated ‘camera looks’. These were held back until the end of the day when Babe was just desperate to finish work and get out onto the Golf Course. Genius!
Apologies if your favourite isn’t here, but if you have a specific image in mind or have any thoughts or comments, birthday wish, tribute etc. please leave your thoughts in the box below. We’d love to hear from you and all contributions will receive a response on this page.
