This week's main theme was Aprons. My mother was a great apron wearer and maker - from the wrap-around overall for wash day, and the pocket apron for carrying dusters and polish up and down stairs to the butcher's apron style for baking to the dainty frilled waist pinny for serving tea. She made them all herself and was a stalwart sewer for any local fete or Christmas fair. But I have no photographs of her in her work-a-day wear.
So, looking at the lady on the left here, I have focussed instead on hairstyles of the 1920's. 30's and 40's
