Just because…

I wanted to include this old photo just because I think it is quite beautiful.

It shows Lizzie Middlehurst nee Lockwood, and her son Bill.

I have fond memories of Lizzie because she was always such fun and was always laughing. She always livened up any gatherings at my Gran’s house!







Here is another interesting old photo, full of character. This is Ellen Ashcroft, who was somehow related to my great grandmother, Polly Watkinson. Ellen was the grandmother of Norman and Walt Nixon.

She is wearing the traditional Lancashire shawl, but I am a bit disappointed that she is wearing her best shoes rather than the traditional clogs!
