The English abroad
I have only got a few pictures of the English family abroad, and most of them naturally refer to Mum's trip when she left for France in the 1950's. There are also a few not shown yet on this blog when her sisters visited her there. But as for the rest, I'm sure there must have been some other trips; I remember seeing photos of Monsieur Père and Grandma in Israel (they called it the Holy Land), and we have some snapshots of Auntie Olive in France, with Nick... So you crowds of blog-readers, don't hesitate, send me your foreign photos! (remember, nothing after 1986). We start naturally with Mum leaving for the enemy! Hop on board:
I wonder how come she had all those young men posing next to her... Here is proof of her stay in France, rural first:
Of course she led a life which her family would have disapproved of thoroughly, but she certainly did seem to enjoy herself. These are more city-oriented:
Then again she had the best of pretexts: her studies!
Can you spot her? Third row, in the middle.
She had the visit of her sisters; and here I think only 2 of them, the person on the far left isn't Jo :
This column (Colonne des Trente) is actually in Guillac; here's a contemporary picture:
Lil' sister Veronica came to Brittany to see her:
And she came again in 1959, after Cath's marriage (she wanted to make sure no doubt):
Now a few other pictures which will no doubt be supplemented by all the ones you'll send me. Here's Auntie Olive with Nick in 1968 in the garden in Bonnebosq: there was LOTS of work to be done!
and Nick again at the seaside:
This time it's Auntie Olive and Noël:
Since November 2014, this blog has covered the 1966 trip to Holy Land: check it here!
