I’ve just come across this tinted photo of my mother that was used on the “Order of Service” at her funeral last week. (May 2010).
She was born in a Northumberland pit village called Cramlington in 1915 and left home to go into service in London at 16 as that was the only work for young girls in the early 30s..
It may have been taken in France as she went there as a 17 year old nanny on holiday with the family.
I love the Kiss Curls!!!
