Precious memories

These old photographs date from the late fifties/early sixties, when we were living in England. I'm the youngest child, and here I'm squeezed next to my Dad.
My brother took this photograph, wherein I seem to be displaying much attitude!
I seem to have just arrived from Russia!

My brother's peeping out of the bay window upstairs. There's an identical photo of my sister on the gatepost too.

Beautiful, beautiful pictures, Dips! That one of you perched on the sofa is just brilliant.

And I love the little pushchair you're posing by in the 'Russian' pic.

And in the very first one you look JUST like you do today. Awesome!

@everyone: Thank you for your very kind comments:)
@Ron: Yes, that's a towel- this was a post-bath picture!
@Sur:My brother would have been seventeen or eighteen, I suppose, at the time.
@Sanand, Anil P, June, Anonymous: Thanks for visiting:)
