The Way We Were

This is me with my sister circa 1950, taken in our backgarden in Dagenham. I never knew then that the building in the top right of the image was to become my local pub and the land between that and our house was farmland (housing estate now) where the farmer allowed us to ride on the backs of his Shire Horses when they returned back from the fields. Lots of happy memories whilst growing up but little did we know whats lies ahead?

This is my very first darkroom print. I remember doing it at our school's youth club and I must have been about 14, and as you can see I had a lot to learn. I'm wearing my favourite 60s dress here. It was black with a pink diamond.

Resigned to the fact that I will have the urine extracted on this one, but publish and be damned, I say.
This should give you all a chuckle:
Arriving home after a weekend hike throught the New Forest...must have been all of 14 and already 6' 2"!
