GRANDAD’S SHIRT SUSPENDERS – William John WELSH

5/1/2017 – GRANDAD’S SUSPENDERS

For Treasure Chest Thursday I give you a photo of my grandad – William John WELSH, pictured in the backyard of his home in Hughson Street, Toxteth in the mid 1950’s.
Near his elbows on each arm, you can just see the folds caused by the elastic suspenders he was wearing, to keep his shirt cuffs clear of his hands which hopefully will keep them a little cleaner.

The shirt suspenders themselves are pictured on the right, and consist of a circle of elastic ribbon covered by thin flexible steel wire. These were left to me by my aunt Betty, Ellen Elizabeth WELSH, prior to her death.
I still keep them in the box with my other jewelry, and wear them sometimes when the occasion arises.
