Early days

I'm going through the last of the photo albums before breaking up the collection and sending it to various members of the family. A few pictures to go online over this long weekend here.


My parents getting engaged in 1963. Britain was just coming out of post-war austerity then, and things were apparently done on a tight budget:

The engagement party. Dad in the back row, third. Aunt June in the middle row first, Uncle Brian middle row third. There's only three of those ten people still alive.

My mom and grandmother picking plums in the orchard.

First picture of me; homecoming with my mom, in front of the fireplace that's still there.
