I have the family history bug for researching both my own family history and that of friends. If your interest is in families of the Fylde in Lancashire, this site is for you, with many photographs to enhance interest. I'll also be looking at my Scottish Donaldson connections, hints and tips, and stories that appeal. So read on, or even better, sign up as a follower. Do get in touch - I would love to hear from others who share my enthusiasm for family history fun.
I know nothing about these two charming photographs, apart from the fact they were in the large collection left by my great aunt Jennie Danson (1897-1986) of Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, It must have been the custom in the1910's-20's to exchange personal photographs with friends as she had many such memorabilia, nearly all inscribed on the reverse with the names.
Postscript: By chance after drafting this posting, I was browsing through my books of old photographs of Poulton-le-Fylde, and what should I find but one of Bernard Pennington - the little boy above in the sailor hat. He was pictured in uniform, with the sad news tht he died in France in 1940.
