The other day my artist friend Jacki cleverly collaged a picture of my great grandparents taken about 1860! See it HERE
It made me want to resurrect other pictures from the OLDEN DAYS.
Here's one from 1939! That's me on the right with the scalloped hem dress -
it was pale blue!
We were a motley bunch of immigrant kids those days on the prairies of Canada.
I think my family was the only one from the British Isles. Many families came from Germany, Italy and the Baltic countries. My minister father loved learning foreign languages and songs.
It was the threatening start of WW11 . . . we were too young to understand the terrror and tragedy of it - altho' I remember my parents leaning over the radio - hearing Churchill announce the nightly bombing of London and the city of Coventry being bombed into extinction!
The OLDEN DAYS come alive for me through these long-forgotten images.
