JOAN SEAMAN AND THE BOYS IN HUGHSON STREET, LIVERPOOL

Mum Joan SEAMAN around 1959/1960, with Gary on her knee and Graham holding the lorry. Pictured in a rare colour photo of the time, sitting on the couch in her parents rented home in Hughson Street, Toxteth, Liverpool 8.

HILLMAN MINX AND COBBLES IN TOXTETH (1964)

For the ‘Wordless Wednesday’ blog prompt today I submit this beauty from the early 1960’s. Hughson Street, Toxteth… the row of neat two-up two-down houses where we lived… Mum, little bro and I on the step in dubious socks and short trousers… and a Hillman Minx from around 1964. And of course, the cobbles.  ItContinue reading “HILLMAN MINX AND COBBLES IN TOXTETH (1964)”

FAMILY HISTORY – GROWING UP ITALIAN

GROWING UP ITALIAN I found this video on Pinterest while I had my first cup of tea in the morning and it reminded me of some of the stories which came from my wife’s family, the D’Annunzio’s, as we started going out together and commenced growing up. The family were descended from first generation Italians;Continue reading “FAMILY HISTORY – GROWING UP ITALIAN”

FAMILY HISTORY – IN SERVICE…?

I’ve been looking this morning at some of the occupations we’ve had in our family over the years, and I came across this photo of my grandmother, Elizabeth Englebretsen as she was known then, with some of the other girls who worked ‘in service’. You often see the names of servants who worked in largerContinue reading “FAMILY HISTORY – IN SERVICE…?”
