My Uncle Billy Aspey, my Grandma Lizzie Aspey and my Dad Bob Griffiths as young man in his 20s about 1933. The baby would be my eldest brother.....he was 19 and my Dad 44 when I was born in 1952! My brothers called Grandma "Mother" rather than Grandma; sadly I never knew her as she died when I was 10 months old, but I'm glad she knew ME!
