Saint Mary's Church ~ 1960


Annie and Harry Winder - August 1937




The lady, third from left is Mrs. Brown, she took care of me, whilst my mum went back to work after my dad went into the army.  Mum only stuck it a few weeks, I used to cry for her everyday,  she often told the tale that when she decided to leave work, she put her arms round me saying, "never mind, love, if we have to live off bread and jam, I am not leaving you".  Mrs. Brown was a very kind soul, this picture was taken at one of her son's wedding, I think his name was Ernest.  Once again the fashions to me, are interesting.

Our wedding day - 10th September 1960
