A Photo a Day in June …… June 5th

Me (L) and Gill (R)


Today’s photograph is another old one.  It shows me with my sister Gill in 1951 (approx)

I don’t  remember the day it was taken, but apparently it was the day before we left Brighton (where we were both born) to travel north, with our parents, to our Grandparents farm and an exciting new life in Yorkshire.

It looks as though it was a happy moment, with Gillian pulling one of her silly faces, while I, ever the prima-donna, smiled sweetly. But it does evoke a bittersweet feeling as my dear sister finally succumbed to breast cancer in 2010.

However,  its so good to have these memories to look back on and smile at the sight of two little girls …………..  and the  rather cute little 1950s outfits !
