Comments about this page

As long as I can remember, my father, Herbert Saunders, used to visit a gentleman called Mr Ernest De la Graves, who was a professor of the violin. It must have been during the 1960s-1980s I think. They used to chat for an hour or so. (I don't know how they met as he was from a different social class to us). I remember Dad telling me once that Ernest taught Sir Ralph Richardson how to play a string instrument and Sir Ralph always turned up for lessons  on his motorbike. Ernest always sent us a Christmas card and Dad had great respect for him and loved talking to him. I wonder if this is the same gentleman as the young boy in the photo? Would anyone know?
