My Grandaughter Nickie(Billie's daughter) and Joannes son Jack aged 3


This is a picture of my Grandaugter Nickie and Johanne's son Jack when they were both aged 3 ,if you look at the picture I have used at the begining of the webpage of our Mum's and Dad's when they were children you will see that my Mum was wearing a similar hat to what Nickie was wearing and they are the spitting image of each other;
by the way while I am on the subject of the title picture does anyone know who the girl on the far left was,I think it must have been Nannie's sister Aunty Ag,who was a couple of years older than Aunty Eve,or her sister Margaret?

Jenny & I at Cormorant Court, Rosendale Road, West Dulwich, circa 1964.

Found this leaflet in a magazine many years ago, advertising a 'Toby Jug' in the name of 'Albert Sagger' (no 's' at the end). He looks suspiciously like a 'Saggers' to me!
