A little family history …

I got a pleasant surprise today when a distant cousin sent me some old photos and scans. One family member who is well known to me from stories but I didn’t ever meet her – my Great Auntie Mary. She was born in 1892 and died in 1994.

Auntie Mary wrote this poem on her 92nd birthday. She was quite a woman!

She had quite a strong interest in politics too!

  1. I wonder if that skirt suit was a casual outfit or if your auntie was dressed for the workplace. I’m partial to the 1930s and ’40s style for women, and it’s fun to see it in old photographs.

  2. I bet that was a thrill to read…fills in a few holes in the family history no doubt. But love the shoes… thinking back to our family photos of that era, all ladies wore sensible but still stylish shoes ! ๐Ÿ™‚
