With the amount of relocations in my life, I have precious few family photos from my youth in Laindon, and of the few I did have, most have succombed to water damage in transit. However, I did manage to find a couple of family members, plus one of Laindon High Road, but it must date to well before my era, as I don’t recognise where it was taken.
This is of my grandmother Daisy Colbear with me as a baby.
This is of Marge Marchant, my aunt and one of her twins, Mary.
This is Mary Marchant and me – I don’t think I was impressed with sharing the doll.
