The late Norah O'Brien surrounded by her whole family and her three girls by her side....Maureen, Leanore and Jane.....the year I am not sure of, may be late 70s to late 80s. We had two visits out here for my Aunty Norah and she really enjoyed her holiday as we loved to see her. This is a great photo and I am glad that I finally found it....

Hello Lizzie down under...Thank you again for the update on Jane and her family, her daughter Louise looks very much like Jane also, especially with the straight hair that Jane had when she was younger, Leonore and Jane look very much alike, as they did when they were younger i thought, no mention of a family for Leonore.Thank you again for opening my memory files, and taking me back to the happy days of childhood, ....see saw marjorie daw jonnie shall have a new master, oh dear im ten again. cheers to you Lizzie.

Hi Kam....used to sing the same thing when we used to see saw too....Leanore's two daughters are sitting next to Christopher and her husband Sam is obscured by one of Maureen's daughters I think....one of Leanore's daughters name is Pamela but I can't remember the other one.
Cheers Kam....glad to be of help. :-)
