The photo for descendants reminisce

This old man is a war veteran. He is over 70 years old. After the war, he has become a watch -mender to earn his living for 40 years. Although this job is being disappeared, he still continue his job during the rest of his life. Therefore, he asks me to take a photograph of the moment in order to help his descendants reminisce about the job that he could make a living and bring his children up.
