Unlike my maternal grandmother, my dad's mother was much photographed. We have photos of her as a child, as a young woman, newly married, with my father as a baby...
She was an only child, which - along with being in a different income bracket - may be part of the reason. An only child in a comfortably-off family, so unlike my nan in a very large working class family.
She may have been rather spoiled - she was, as my father puts it, "rather difficult".
As kids, we loved her - she was funny and made us laugh.
I have a hand-coloured version of this last photo, I'll try and find the time to scan it in and add it here.
So, here is the hand-coloured version:
