                  This is the one they have at the home on Forthlin Ave. where they identify Paul as being in his mum’s lap!! I even emailed them about the error, but never heard back.

                    As my great-grandmother would say, “Same dumb face!” Lol! (She had a lot of crazy expressions! She died when I was 15. She was 16 when she had my grandmother.)

                      Your great-grandma sounds like an interesting lady! 

                      Talk about making faces, lol..... There was another photo taken of Paul and his mother that I saw, he was about 5 years old... but I decided not to post it, because it could be embarrassing for him! lol  In the photo he had just finished swimming or something, because his mother was helping him change out of his swim trunks, lol  He looked like he was crying and put his hand out and made a face like "Noooo... not now, put the camera away!" lol   (Poor little guy, I think I've seen him make that same look later in a few paparazzi photos! lol)  Anyway, he was completely covered in the photo of course, his brother was standing in front of him, but still...  just couldn't see posting it

                        There is one pic where he’s naked and his mom is trying to get his underpants on. She is covering him, so you can barely tell. Mike is in the pic too. Will try to find it.

                          Maybe we're thinking of the same photo.  It could have been underpants instead of swim trunks

                          If you find it, and want to post it, that's fine.... I guess I'm too shy to post a photo of Paul's underpants, even if he was only 5 

                            Can’t find it, but here’s a cute one:

                              It seems obvious in the photo that the younger child is on his mother's lap, and the older child (who would be Paul) is next to his dad.  Must have been a misidentification on the historic site's part... don't think Mike McCartney or Paul would have given them the wrong info.

                                Thanks, Nancy!  I think that's probably a cousin of theirs.  She looks like one of the McCartney relatives in the Liverpool pub video... circa 1973

                                  That photo appeared in Mike McCartney's 'Thank U Very Much' book .

                                    Thanks so much, Kestrel!  That's the photo I was thinking of earlier. 

                                    Loved all the childhood pics of Paul on that page, these two were my favorites:

                                    Looks like brother Mike is holding a mandolin.  Paul has said in interviews that his father was a musician, so there were probably always musical instruments (including a piano) around the house

                                    Love this one, lol... so sweet

                                    Paul:  The most beautiful girl in the world just carried my schoolbooks for me, Mikey... I think I'm in love!

                                    Mike: Blimey, not again!

                                      I don’t think that’s his brother Mike with the mandolin  (too young)  😉

                                      Looks like the girl cousin between Paul and Mike in that other pic.

                                        Ok, maybe Mike McCartney's book has that photo and identified who it is.

                                        If you're talking about the photo of the baby girl sitting between Paul and Mike, I think that's their cousin, too.  As I said before, she looks alot like one of his relatives that was in the Liverpool pub video (circa 1973).

                                        In the photo of Mike and Paul on the blanket, the little girl in the background is too far away to be able to identify, unless Mike did in his family photos book.

                                          I meant it was the same girl in both photos and is one of their cousins. 

                                          Have seen the one where she is sitting between them many times. 

                                          Just looked in Mike’s book, and there is a non-cropped version of the one with the mandolin. It has no caption, but now that the child’s legs can be seen, there is a chance it could be Mike, as the legs are long enough. Paul is wearing the same hat in the other pic of them with their mum in the background. 

                                          The one with the pretty blond girl with the ribbon in her hair, sitting next to Paul, is identified by Mike as “Paul and his earliest fan.” Lol!

                                            Thanks for the info, Nancy, and for looking that up!    Somehow the little girl in the distance, in the second photo above, looked like an early fan, too! lol   

                                            Saw on Amazon and Ebay that Mike McCartney has two family photo books (see covers below)... Maybe the second one is just a new edition, a reprint of the original with a new title.
