It would have been my fathers' birthday yesterday : had he lived he would have been 99. In a couple of weeks time it would have been my mothers' birthday and she too would have entered her 100th year. They both lived well into their 90s and had a long and happy life. For the centenary of their birth next year I think I might put together a short book of photographs and memories : something to hand down to future generations. But let me mark the start of this their centenary year by featuring this Sepia Saturday photograph of their wedding day in 1935. Amongst the guests featured in the photograph you will spot names which have already become familiar to readers of my Saturday posts : there is Auntie Miriam alongside Uncle Harry, there is Auntie Amy and there is my grandfather, Albert. I will try and put them in some kind of genealogical context with this "wedding tree". Happy birthdays Glad and Alb.
