Hello Doreen!.....we used to get "cheques" in those days that you could spend at certain shops and pay off weekly when the clubman came round,(a necessity for most people in those days), and he obviously went to your house too as he used to say we could have been twins.I am proud of my "Griffiths" look and can see my Dad and yours in the photo of our Grandma Annie Monks. Oliver has had a bad time as , besides being in traction, he has also picked up a stomach bug at the infirmary. He's only ten months old and it's sad to see him lying there, poor little lad.Both he and Edie have looks from both sides of the family. I have one of Oliver with "the eyes", but we have one of Edie where her mouth is so like my Mam's that our Jamie cried when he saw it. As I said to Michelle, they live on in us.

A lovely photo Irene and you and little Doreen are the spit of one another. I just came on here to see your Aunt Sally. You also look very much like your dad.
