Today I have some photos to share with you that I have scanned out of our family albums. I spent some time scanning quite a few photos, but here I have included the ones which I think would be of the most interest to others.
Although I am normally happy to have my photos shared elsewhere on the internet, I would ask you to please refrain from sharing or redistributing these photos on the web however do feel free to share a link to this post instead.
My great great uncle (great granddad's brother) during a 3 week convalescence in Bridlington, 1937. Also check out the very stylish lady in the background.
Granny in her nurse's uniform with possibly a doctor/male nurse and a patient (?)
One of the earliest photos we own. We don't know exactly who these people are, but think they might be two of my great granddad's brothers. We have dated the photo to possibly sometime in the 1920s.
4 generations - my mum, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother. I've recently purchased a dress which is quite similar to the one my granny is wearing in this picture (the spotty dress).
My great granddad with his horse.
My great grandmother's sister during the 1940s
My great great grandfather.
The wedding of my great uncle's daughter, 1969. She made her own wedding dress and is wearing it with white gogo boots!
My great granddad again.
My great great grandmother and her brother on holiday, so funny!
My granny and her brothers, late 1940s or early 1950s
My mum and her sister, 1960s
My mum and great grandparents. I think my mum was about 14 or 15 here so this will be early 1970s. I love my mum's dress in this photo. (Edit: she says she was actually 18 here)
