At the door
A series of pictures of people standing on the threshold of 9 Derwent:
1940 (perhaps) Cath: she said the photos was taken just before going to school for the first time: the grin on her face said it all!
1958 Mary and Nick. You can see that there is only one door-step behind Mary: now Mum, upon looking at these photos, told me that another step had been added by Monsieur Père in 1961 in order to enable Paco's pram to stand there, the other one being too narrow. Scroll further to see this second step!
1961 Grandma and Cath's three eldest
1968 (?) Grandma and Mark, Carol & Janet
1969 Father Crook and Chris. And here you can see the second step quite well, and the difference it made with next door's still existing one step! So Paco's pram (see above) stood on that mottled step built by Grandpa in 1961.
This time with his grand-parents
Cath and Daddy, perhaps 1972
1982 François and Chris
And finally, a mystery person, on a photo sent by Mark, which you can enlarge (thanks to Mark's scanner - click on the photo) to help us guess who it is, and when it was!!
12 July: I showed this photo to Mum: she thinks it could be AB... Any other suggestions?
