Pictures of Childhood : Wordless Wednesday

Jessie and Bernard Pennington
Granny Jolly & granddaughter


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.   

Wordless Wednesday is a daily prompt from,
used by many genealogy bloggers to help them tell stories of their ancestors. In this instance, the emphasis is on photographs.
