Doing some sorting out this afternoon whilst watching the Olympics, and found some family photos that had belonged to my Great Aunt. I adored this one, so I thought I’d share a few with you.
It shows my maternal Grandmother Ethel (known as Ettie) on the left and my Great Aunt Muriel on the right. There’s no date on the back, but it judging by their ages it’ll be early 1910s. I just loved Ettie’s nonchalant expression and casual pose, whereas Muriel is the epitome of sweetness – lovely little Yorkshire lasses.
Here they are again (below) in their early twenties, (middle two), and Muriel with the glasses has overtaken Ettie heightwise. Girls about town in Llandudno in 1929.
Finally, here is Ettie (right) with her daughter, my Mum – Maureen in 1931 by which time she was married and living in Belfast, and with me (left) in 1960.
Sadly, she died in 1961 aged only 57 when I was not quite one, so I never knew her, but it is lovely getting acquainted just a little through family photos.
