This is part 1 of 5,
I am the first person on the front row, and I can remember my mother saying that it had cost her 7/6 in old money ( approx 37p ) for that corner.

Just wondering if the Joan Roberts mentioned, had siblings named Teresa, Vincent, Margaret, Terence and Ellen? ... If so, can someone point out where Joan is on the photo.
