As his mother and daughter remember:
His sitters would come to his studio and he immediately would put them at ease by choosing (very carefully) what music he thought they would enjoy. Although he was a shy man he would surprise people at the end of a talk on photography by taking his penny whistle out of his back pocket and playing a jolly tune on it!
