Default Looking at old photos.



Just found this photo of my grand mother and my mum when she was two months old in 1969.
Ive always like looking at old photos gives you a great sense of connection and history my grand mother was just telling me all about it and it's very clear it's one of her happiest memrories with her children.
Also a MK1 ford cortina in the background my grand always had a soft spot for the mk1 even tho she never learned too drive it's the one behind.

My grand fathers Vauxhall Viva my grand standing next too not on shot also he had a singer gazelle the same time trying too find a photo of that as my grand did take a shot of it.

This was taken in Dorset as my grand lived there for a good few years during grand fathers army days with the tank Regiment.

Anyone got photos of your family that you look into or taking a trip too memory lane.

Go on Go on

GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON GO ON.

GO ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Somewhere in Spain in the 1960s with my big sister and little brother.

Check out the yellow lights, for the journey through France, and the aerodynamic luggage rack.

1st one is me at about 5yrs with,mother,younger brother and elder sister. About 1950.
2nd and 3rd are not old photos but the family may have a laugh over them in years to come. 60th birthday and 70th birthday,what a difference 10 yrs make.
