The Sepia Saturday prompt this week shows four young men sitting in deck chairs on a "passage to the Congo", in 1939.
It seemed impossible to me at first to connect that with what I had in mind - which was some kind of tribute to my mum, who would have turned 90 years old this week, if she had still been living. (She died in 2009.)
Probably not much chance of finding a deck chair in her childhood photo album... Or?? (...Have a guess...)
When I took out the album, it fell open at the middle - and, what do you know! There she was, 3+ years old, having a chat with some kind of stuffed toy in a deck chair...
From the next summer, 1934, there is beach photo of her with her parents. No chairs... But it is a summer holiday photo.
A bit further on I find another deck chair, in a photo from someone's birthday party in the summer of 1940. Here my mum (at age 10) must be the older girl to the left in the background - and I suppose one of the younger ones may be her sister, my aunt.
