Where was this drawing discovered?

 

This drawing was found on the wall of the hat factory. It was done by Ernie himself when he was fourteen  years old. He used to work there when he was very young.

 

Where is Ernie coming from? In this picture you can see Ernie coming up from the huge basement under the hat factory. "It will be an underground car park", he told us.

Where did our grandparents come from? "My Mums mother was born in 1915.
She lives in a country called the Philippines. She was a farmer all her life. She is 85 years old,and still works on the farm. She looks after the chickens,pigs and horses. She grows lots of vegetables. I hope to see her one day".
