My mother was born 100 years ago today. Here are some pictures of her -
In this first one she was probably about 6 or 7, and it was probably taken when she was staying with her grandfather or an aunt and uncle. Wonderful outfit! I'm not sure if the finishing touch is the lace trim round the knees of her drawers, or the ribbons tying her shoes.
The next one is perhaps a little later, but not much, as her father is wearing the uniform of the RFC, which became the RAF in 1918.
And here she is with her children, my brother and me (I'm the cute one), in 1947. Those shorts look knitted to me.
