    This is probably an easy one for you guys. Is this a DH.60 Moth? Or something else?

    I'm no DH expert, but I'd agree with your DH.60 identification. I'd go out on a limb and guess Cirrus Moth vs. Gipsy, just from the amount of engine showing atop the cowling.

    Looks like one, but the negative must have been flipped as the prop turns the wrong direction.
    Edit, I did find a few photos where the prop turns the American direction, must be a different engine.

    Photo is the right way round. Taken in western Canada.

    I got curious and looked at a few photo's of Cirrus Moth's. It would appear that the Cirrus engine turns Clockwise as the photo shows. Name:  220px-CirrusIII.jpg

    I'm no expert on DH Moths and their engines but I would say that depending on the engine in the plane, the prop turned both directions.
    I can find multiple images of the prop turning both ways.
