They say every picture tells a story, well these certainly do. My nephew is researching our family tree and he sent me these, I am so pleased with them as I do not have any photo's of my Grandparents and these are My Grandparents. The Old gentleman in the bowler hat and the lady sitting on the chair next to him are my Dad's parents, did you notice his watchchain across his waiscoat and the shine on his shoes. The man with the pipe and the baby on his knee are my moms parents and the baby is my Mom. The old lady with the flower on her hat is my grandmother when she grew to be an old lady she was still very upright, the lady with her is my Aunt Flo, who was my mums sister and her two children. The photo of the children is very funny, if you look at the top one they are all very serious and then in the next one they have obviously been told to smile and they are all doing so. Do you recognise me I am the tall one at the back on the right hand side and the boy stood next to me is the nephew who sent me the photo's. I am the youngest of 10 children and my mom was 43 when she had me. I often think of all the hard work she must have done to keep us all clean and tidy, there were no washing machines then and yet we were always well clothed and clean and my Mom was a wonderful cook who could make a meal out of most things I can still smell her Lamb Stew with dumplings which used to be waiting for me when I came home from school, Lovely!
