• Christmas pictures of 1962, perhaps

    Hello, when Cath and Charles were here yesterday, I asked mum about those strange photos, as yet not posted:

    Christmas pictures of 1962

    I didn't know why some of them were yellow, and where they had been taken. But mum reassured me that yes, they were 9 Derwent pictures, and the yellow ones had been covered with varnish, perhaps because at the time, Charles had wanted to heighten their quality (maybe he had wanted to draw them). Here is a series of four (not very good quality) which probably belonged to the same period, but when? that is the question:

    It was funny to listen to Cath and Charles, because they disagreed about the date, and even the possibility, which mum insisted on, that the photos were really taken at Christmas. They finally agreed it must have been the Christmas period. But they didn't agree on the date either! 1961 or 1962? We decided, with mum, that because of Tini's apparent age in the series above, that these four photos at least had to be 1962. But Charles still disagrees, saying he couldn't have come to England at that date. So, another mystery!

    Not sure these last two fit here, but it's a guess!
