I'm continuing in the 'down on the farm' series of photos of my DH's childhood on the farm, we have gone back in time to around 1958, this time.
The journalling is written by my DH and reads as follows:
Around the edge of the layout: We made our own entertainment in those days. My sister was dressed in the nurses outfit with her hand on my head. Our friend neighbour, Janice Penman, joined in and we would wheel those dogs around for hours in the pram (or me if the dogs got fed up). It must be around 1958, I look younger than 2, my sister around 5, and the yard hasn't been cemented. "
On the squared paper: This may look like a pile of old junk, but dad would never throw anything away, and all of the items in this pile could come in handy one day. They also provided amusement for me and Davie Penman in our alter egos as "Jock and Joe the scrapmen".
