Part of the prompt for today:
Be they old postcards, old family photographs or old book illustrations, it doesn't really matter: they all have a special attraction to us sepians.
I have a shoe box full of postcards so I thought I should start featuring them as they relate to our family history.
My grandparents came to Canada, Montreal, in the mid 1960s from London (before that they raised their children in Dublin). All their children had emigrated by this time and were raising their own families. My grandmother passed away in 1970 but my grandfather went on to live until 1991.
For all those years he lived on his own in Laval with my parents and aunts and uncles always close by.
He would go on motor trips with them. This is 1974 Squam Lake New Hampshire. I'm not sure who he was travelling with, obviously not my parents as this is addressed to them!!
My grandfather, Tom Swift, had lovely handwriting.
