What a lovely photo this is and my thanks to Sue
for letting me have a copy & I loved your dad's
description of her Sue!
She definitely has the 'Shrubsole' look about her.
Brian & Val Fagg, holders of the original photo, are also researching this branch of the family. If anyone is interested in making contact with them please let me have your e mail address & I will forward it to them.
Arthur McCullum Forrester
My first cousin, once removed and my second cousin.
This photo was taken in 1939. The writing on the back of the photo says "in the park", and we assume in Folkestone, Kent. However, looking at it closely it may well have been taken in Kingsnorth Gardens, Folkestone. Mabel was age 46 and Arthur, her son age 22 when the photo was taken.
My thanks to Norman & his late sister Valda, my second cousins in Australia for this photo.
