In the olden days

Inspired by Silverpebble's post about old photographs, here's one from the mid-70s - me (in the red jumper), my brother (the blond) and friends Edwin and Sandra having a picnic at the peat-hill. By the look of the peats - dry and ready to be bagged - this is mid-to-late summer.

We don't have many photo prints from childhood but my parents have a whole load of slides which we need to get scanned at some point. I can't wait to see what there is! We had a good look through them holding the slides up to the light but of course you only get the gist, no detail.

This is a great picture! Noticing crocheted bag and knitted flask cosy? I think my sisters and I had jumpers of a similar hue...must go rooting through the parents' album myself now!

I hadn't noticed the bag actually! It's slightly surprising that none of us wearing a hand-knit - very 70s jumpers though :-D.
