Wistful Wednesday : 1930
My Mother was born in October of 1929, this photograph must have been taken in the spring of 1930. She could barely sit up by herself so I believe she was about six months old. My Mom is in this photograph with her older brother Alfred, he would have been two years old in June of 1930. He died when he was nineteen years old in 1947. Since then my Mom has taken over as the oldest in the family. My Mom had eleven brothers and sisters, only four of them are still living.
Mom was eighty yesterday, she said " Years ago, If someone had told me that I would live to be eighty, I would never have believed them."
What I like about this photo..well first of all, I like to think that someone was holding onto the back of this baby that looks like she is about to topple over. ( I have done this on occasion with the grands when they were little) I like Alfred's knickers and tights, and the big ribbons in his shoes. I imagine his knickers and vest were blue, and my Mom's dress a pale pink. At least that is what I see beyond the black and white:)
***I repaired this photo, It had a very large crease in it..of course I can tell where it was..can you?
