William Hitchcock and son
Photograph of Alfred Hitchcock's father William, taken outside the family store. Although the child on the horse is often said to be Alfred, it is more likely to be his older brother William as the combination of uniform and bunting indicates the photograph was likely taken in mid-1900 during the Relief of Mafeking celebrations. The girl on the right might be Hitchcock's sister Ellen.
