Sepia Saturday give bloggers an opportunity to share their family history through photographs.
Not quite cuddles, kisses and lifts, as my family proved to show a restraining side in front of the camera. But still love and affection shine through the hugs and holding hands in these some of my favourite photographs.
The water is not as deep and the rocks not as high as in the prompt image, but here is the earliest photograph I have of my parents together, taken by the river at Kirby Lonsdale in Cumbria where they got engaged in 1937. My mother looks very elegant, but how on earth did she negotiate those stepping stones?
Much bigger rocks here plus some knee-hugging! My father and mother (on the left) and I have no idea who the middle girl is.
I was born during the Second World War and this is the earliest photograph I have of myself -with my father. Was this the first time he saw me?
Another hug from Daddy in our back garden. But what would the health pundits today have to say today about that cigarette near a child?
A big hug from my father in 1965, just before I left to work for a year in the United States.
Husband and I on honeymoon in the south of England and here at Stonehenge, so plenty of visitors around to deter anything more than this arm in arm gesture
Baby daughter having a lovely cuddle from Mummy - besides the river in Hawick in the Scottish Borders
Our young daughter took this photograph whilst we were out on a walk - the nearest I have to showing a proper cuddle. It was the 1970's as you can tell from the miniskirt and large collar.
Daughter and granddaughter in one of those "snap of the moment" photographs which turned out to be a delight.
Still arm in arm - husband and I 40 years on, celebrating out Ruby Wedding Anniversary by the Austrian Lakes.
