My mum has come to visit for a fortnight to spoil her grandsons and weed our garden.

I think she used up her luggage quota on photographs. I've scanned in 176 so far and I think I'm nearly done. (Phew!) The oldest date on the back of a picture is 1916 but I'm sure a few are over a century old.

This picture of Granny Rose and two of my aunties is a lot more recent ... although honor forbids me from even hinting as to the exact year.

There was a street name on the back so I tracked it down on Google Maps and here's what it looks like today.

Note that the lamp post has been removed. Possibly, it was melted down for the war effort.
