1) Put the photo of him as a small child on his desk (in frame) at the beginning amongst paperwork etc. 2) Have him pick up the paperwork (and see the photo) before leaving.3) When he sees the picture on the shop door have him remember the photo.*Running theme throughout is now the photo (Ignoring it to remembering it).
4) We see the photo at the end (House)
