Laugh, and be jolly - Sepia Saturday 510
While Alan's prompt picture (below) shows jolly people on a beach, I managed to find a group of people being jolly in spite of colder climate. It's another photo from my mum's childhood album - which I have continued to explore a bit, together with her memories written down many years later in a separate notebook.
The photo is from 1933, and mum is the little girl sitting furthest to the right on the wheel barrow, three years old. The photo was taken at the farm where she and her parents were living back then. My grandparents were not farmers (my grandfather was a teacher), but rented a flat in a house at that farm (~1932-39). There were no other small children in the neighbourhood for my mum to play with; but the couple who owned the farm had four grown up ones - two sons and two daughters. The jolly people with my mum in this photo are those four young adults, plus three visiting friends.
