Continuing with my series of old family beach photos, these are some of my favourites. Though actually, most of them are my favourites.
In this first photo are my grandparents (paternal) - Harold and Win Jiggins, and Harold's sister Queen. Win and Queen are the 2 girls standing together just to the right of centre, holding hands and Queenie with a particularly clingy costume! I can't help wondering if she realised. Harold is behind and between them.
I'm pretty sure that the lady set just in front of Win and the man to her left (with the 2 boys between them) are my great grandparents, Win's mum and dad.
Aren't these costumes great! and all the women, bar none, are wearing those mob caps, most of the little girls too.
The second photo includes my Auntie Queen again sat in the water almost centre front, next to the woman holding a little boy, and with her brother - Harold, my grandad - on the other side of her. I'm pretty certain its Win, my gran, just behind and to the left of Harold holding up the seaweed.
And this last one I like best of all due to the larking about and face pulling. This really captures a moment, doesn't it?
Auntie Queen is there again, 2nd from the left at the back and I'm pretty sure that next to her on the end of the row is her mother, my great grandmother Elizabeth. Other photos of Elizabeth are formal, and serious and usually wearing glasses but I think this is her.
and just look at those costumes and caps!
Happy Sepia Saturday - more fabulous photos over here.
