Today's theme is:
This is one of several postcards sent to me from my grand aunt Kate (Catherine), my maternal grandmother's sister. Kate's story was common at that time. As the youngest child she stayed at home t o take care of her widowed, blind mother. When her mother died she finally married her long time suitor Jimmy Doyle and they moved to England and had a daughter Anne.
Unfortunately she died at an early age in 1960 and we lost touch with her husband and daughter.
This card dates from 1958 as she mentions my first communion and confirmation. It was sent from England to Baie Comeau Quebec.
Kate spoiled me as her first grand niece.
I've no idea who the older girl is in this photo. That is my mother's handwriting.
Alex commented that my postcard looked a lot like hers. I can see that mine is marked as Bamforth Taylot Tot No. K190.
