1955 : The two sisters

The two elder sisters of 10 children. On the left is my Mum Annette and on the right her sister Yvonne. Two girls then 8 boys.

Love this photo as they both look so happy. Their later life was a bit tragic. Yvonne contracted MS in her early 30’s and passed away in 1998. My Mum started having mental health problems, also in her early 30’s, which was later diagnosed as schizophrenia.

I think I’ll hold onto this happier memory in the photo. This was probably taken at the Police house they lived in on Knighton Fields Road, Leicester. There are two identical houses facing a Junior School. My Grandad was a Police Constable for about 3 or 4 years back in the 50’s.
