Here we see an English boy with wire-framed glasses. HJ looks to be about 9 years old and has a very pensive look. He has printed his name. It looks to be H.J. Whillocktol, but we are not sure. He has a habit of putting capital letters in the middle of his sirds. His letters are fairly clear, but that does not sound like an English name we are familiar with. He does add that he was from South London. He wears a kind of knitted sweater shirt with a Rugby collar. We are not sure weyher to call this a knit shirt or a sweater. He has buttoned the collar, but does not wear a tie. The portrait is not dated, but we would guess about 1930. A British reader tells us that the scriot reads, "H.T. Whitlock & son - London". This would mean it is the photographer's name rather thn the boy's name.
