Anne at Digmoor
Photo: Helen

My sister Anne Bradshaw, bridesmaid at our cousin Enid's wedding to Harold Ashall. I was always envious of her lovely dress made by my Aunty Lizzie. A pale lilac lining overlaid with white organdie that had little sprigs of lavender on it. The photo would have been taken about 1952/53. The wedding was at Digmoor Methodist Church.
