Sandra showed some photos of herself around 1949/50 and asked for pictures of us when we were young. Jackie has promised some photos of her belly dancing days (come on Jackie, it's definitely your turn now!) and I've come up with a few pictures of me at different times in my life.
The first one is my christening photo when I could have been somewhere between 3 and 6 months old - so that's 1945/46.
This next one was taken in 1972, when I was teaching. It was near the end of term, before the summer holidays started in July, and it was sport's day. One of the parents thought it highly amusing to have taken a photo with his telephoto lens of Mrs. H yawning on duty and it took a bit of living down in the staff room. There were jokes and comments about how enthused I seemed to be about our annual sports day. The truth was, I was very tired because I was in the early stages of pregnancy, but didn't know it at the time. I do remember that I could hardly keep my eyes open at this event, when I was supposed to be supervising my class into the correct order for the events they were in.
Finally, one taken in 1973 with the 6 month old baby that was making me yawn in the previous picture when he was but a tiny embryo! Just look at those hexagonal specs frames which were quite a fashion statement at the time!
