YOURS (UK) - - Remember When -

My mother and I were all dressed up here for a day on the sands at Barry Is­land beach. We never wore sun screen in those days, but we ob­vi­ously didn’t need it any­way as we were so cov­ered up! My mother was wear­ing a navy suit with a co-or­di­nat­ing blouse. Sylvia Thomp­son, Vale of Glam­or­gan I was aged 11 when this photo was taken, to­gether with my three lovely aunts on hol­i­day. Don’t they look so el­e­gant with their full skirts, v neck­lines and permed hair? I re­mem­ber tak­ing many pho­tos with that brown Ko­dak cam­era. Pauline Si­mons, Mid­dle­sex This is a photo (be­low) of my aun­tie and me at a bar­be­cue in Ma­jorca. I was wear­ing one of my re­ally ex­pen­sive de­signer white linen dresses – they were all the fashion back then. I was so up­set when a bot­tle of red wine I’d bought smashed in my suit­case. I never got the stains out! Mar­garet Duns­dale, New­cas­tle Here I am (above) with my friend in the South of France wear­ing a yel­low cut-out jump­suit, sim­i­lar to the ones sold on the high street now. Need­less to say, it wasn’t as ex­pen­sive as they are today. I am 82 now and it still fits me. What goes around comes around! Bar­bara Hen­son, Kent
