My mother, Florrie, lived from 1912 to 1999. She was born in St Helens, Lancashire but grew up in Newmillerdam, Yorkshire. When she was 18 she moved to London to study nursing. She worked at Claybury Hospital in Woodford Bridge, London.
She was married in 1936 and my brother was born in 1937 and I was born in 1942. They endured 6 years of war in London and 4 years of rationing before they migrated to Australia in 1949. I remember her as a loving, caring mother who was always dressed beautifully. These photos were taken in late 1930's and early 40's.
