{minna vintage} – Mum’s Family, 1962

April 27, 2009

My mother was the first to leave the nest in her family and was horribly homesick while studying in London. There were no lines of communication easily accessible to them that wasn’t a major expense. There were no cellphones, email, twitter or facebook…just a simple telegram and the occasional call (when her family could travel to find a landline). This treasured snapshot of my granny Winnifred, aunt Erdine and uncles, Prince and Hammy in Barbados, made England feel more like “home.”
