Christmas in the backyard

1958

A family Christmas in our back yard in Opawa. I am showing off my new scooter, my sister Jenny has a cane dolls pram and my cousin Wayne has a carpentry set. I can't see what his brother Chris has. My dad has obviously just painted the shed as I can see the 'wet paint' sign propped against it.

Christmas Day 1975

25 December 1975

Christmas day with my family at my parents' house. Dad again in polo shirt and shorts. Traditional roast lunch on the table, with a bottle of sparkling wine. Real pine tree in the corner. Net curtains and a "dried arrangement" on the wall. Formica table & steel tube chairs. My nephew going through his "pull a face at the camera" phase !
