He was born in 1933 so I don't know if he attended St Thomas school the same time as your mother. He would have been 73/74 years of age had he been alive.

I agree, what lovely stylish ladies. No overweight issues here, they all look very elegant.

When you think not a lot of money to spare on clothes in those early days of the fifties. But people were thrifty and some clever with a needle or sewing machine - the ladies always managed to turn out elegantly by keeping their 'good' clothes for best. A habit hard to break from!
