These two ladies are my Grans mother (left) and Grandmother (right)
I have no idea when this photo was taken, I'm guessing before Elizabeth was married in 1907.
I wish I had a sweet story about these two ladies, however Mum remembers her Grandmother as being very horrible! She used to leave her children outside the pub whilst her and husband drank the afternoon away! She lived with my Mum for a few years in the 1950's and would steal all the fireside warmth with a huge chair and tell the kids to sit behind it!
