Filling my time today by sorting out some old photos, I found this one of me at Nursery aged about 3 (1951). Health and Safety and Ofsted would have plenty to say about the place nowadays! But I survived!

I wonder how we all survived without Health and Safety in those days!

That's such a lovely picture. Reminds me of early childhood.

That’s me in the cardigan in the middle grin

Fifties children all seemed to look like that!

They did, mary51 smile
I love the teacher’s coat in this one grin

I found one of me, aged about 5, at infant school, with an identical hairstyle, Lisagran

Did we all look the same? grin

Posh teachers you had Lisagran.

All the girls with shortish hair, parted on one side, no fringe tied back with a ribbon.

Another lovely pic. We had one just like that of my aunt and her class.

Fabulous photo's of the happiest days of our lives. My own photo's were similar around that time, the ribbon in the hair----then I went on to have plaits which always used to get pulled.

I still keep in touch with a woman, via Christmas card, who was born 10 days before me in the next bed to my mum over 79 years ago.
