Mother holding baby, by the new Austin A90 Atlantic convertible with the poodle, outside the family home. This photograph shows Patricia Von Sonnewald holding her baby Rebecca Tira, in front of her and her husband's new car, an Austin Atlantic, Elwood, 1950. Patricia remembers Henrick took a photograph of the new car, his poodle, his wife and his new baby all in the one photograph, outside their house in Dryden Street, 'All his possessions lined up in a row.' When their baby Tira was born, Henrick turned up to Margaret Coles Hospital with a new convertible sports car, an Austin Atlantic, to surprise Patricia. After he took her home, they had lunch and he took Patricia out to learn to drive it.
