Haig children with ponies
One small sepia photograph (carte de visite) of Douglas Haig as a child on a pony with others outside his childhood home at Cameron House, Fife. The photograph is of a group of two ladies and three children on ponies in front of the stone entrance of Cameron House. The other two children are most likely Douglas' brother George and sister Henrietta. The baby on the left is Douglas Haig and is being held by one of the ladies. On reverse is printed: "John Patrick, 71 High Street, Leven".
A handwritten note on the back of the photograph, later written by either Haig or his wife, makes a reference to this being the first photograph of the young Douglas not needing his perambulator.
