Peter and Margaret - The Early Years

Peter, 6 weeks old

Peter with Mum on the allotment

The photograph above, three years later or so, is with mum on the allotment (which provided us with a lot of fresh food during the war years.)

Peter was first on the scene, in November 1937. This is him at 6 weeks, taken on 28 December 1937. The picture on the right, in front of 113 Colinton Mains Road, was at 5 months old.

            Margaret's turn came next. Not for her a wintry mid-November arrival, but the middle of an unusually warm and sunny June in 1939.
