One of my favourite old photos
I was about 9 or 10 years old as I recall, and I remember very clearly this photo being taken by a professional photographer who came to the house.
And I remember details quite vividly. Even though it's a black and white photo, I remember that the dress I was wearing was a turquoise one...my favourite at the time. And my baby brother was wearing what was known in those days as a romper suit. It was almost like a dress, except that it fastened underneath with buttons....and it had smocking along the front (does anyone remember smocking?) which I think my mother did.
The sofa we were sitting on was very old, and the striped material along the back was part of an old curtain that my mother had placed there to cover the worn bits.
Isn't it strange...the things we remember when we look at old photos?
