Danson Sisters All Dressed Up, c.1912 - Wordless Wednesday
Wordless Wednesday is a daily blogging prompt used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors. Here the empahsis is on family photographs.
I love this photograph of my mother and aunt, Kathleen and Edith Danson, who are the two little girls at the front of this photograph.
All dressed up, they are in some kind of procession (Empire Day or Gala Day? ) at Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, with the group lining up outside St. Chad's Church. It must have been taken around 1912, judging by the age of my mother and aunt, and also the dress of the bystanders. My aunt recollected that the little boy behind (Thomas ?) had been sent the Indian banner by an uncle in America.
