Favourite Photo #52Ancestors

There are so many family photos I love, but for this exercise I picked this one, which I love so much I included it on my home page.

It’s Christmas 1958, and the picture features the amazing women of my family: my great grandmother, seated, holds my mum’s first cousin, born just a few weeks before. The dark-haired woman is my Granny, the glamorous one in pink is her sister, who’s still going strong at 90. My mum, just 12, is in the back. It was one of the times in her life when she looked most like me, I think.

It makes me happy to look at it.
