Still helping mum and dad with sorting out their possessions, we’ve started on the photographs – they have 8 large plastic boxes full of them (& counting)!
As you know, I LOVE vintage, and especially love old photos.
Here are my (sadly no longer with us) Grandma and Poppa on their wedding day in 1936 (I think)
Doesn’t she look glamourous – her dress was hand sewn by her father who was a tailor (for the King’s family) unfortunately my mum has no idea what happened to Grandma’s dress.
My grandpa didn’t change much over the years; as it was so broken he could push his nose over to the side of his face, which he did with glee when I was little as it made me scream in horror every time.

He entered many County competitions and won repeatedly (these pics are from 1967 but he was still winning into the 1980's), especially for his onions...
|1st prize at the County Show in 1967|
|With my Aunt (& cousin), my Mum (looking gorgeous) & his 1st prize-winning Gladiolis, again in 1967|
|These onions really are huge – don't see them this size in the shops!|
|in their garden in the late 70's|
I loved them to bits and still miss them some 23 years on, it's wonderful to have these pics of them.
More to come in the next few weeks. x
