This nine-year-old newspaper boy is one of the best known images from the Belfast Telegraph's photographic history - but where is he now?

Emmanuel McGee was snapped selling our old broadsheet newspaper as he went about his part-time job.

Now his happy face is one of three bespoke art pieces from the Stephen Farnan range in the newly-launched Belfast Telegraph Studio site.

The limited edition framed porcelain drawing from the Co Armagh artist is one of three pieces that are on sale now.

The delicately drawn sketch captures not only the vigour of the young boy at that time, but also the city from a time and practice that have disappeared for ever.

We would love to find out more about what happened to Emmanuel over the years. So Emmanuel and family, please get in touch on and email digital.editorial@belfasttelegraph.co.uk.
