Out for a stroll on an overcast Sunday afternoon perhaps?
I found this undated photo in the collection of my aunt, Elizabeth Welsh after she had passed away.
The young couple is Arthur Teese (b.1918) and Edna Irvine (b.1921) - and they are taking a walk through an unidentified park, possibly one of the local ones in Liverpool.
The family connection to the two of them was through Edna, who was my mother's cousin.
I remember the couple fondly from when I was young, and I recall how my brother and I would need to be on our best behaviour during their visits.
Edna would act as if she was a stern school-mistress. Gary and I would have to tidy the toys up in our bedroom prior to them arriving, just in case she decided to inspect our bedroom to see if it was untidy. Arthur, on the other hand, would follow along behind his wife... cheerily calling me 'Haircut' and showing me the hair-clippers which he had hidden away in his jacket pocket. He'd walk past us and give us a friendly wink, and then pull a face and throw us a gurning smile, leaving my brother and I doubled up in stitches laughing.
I can't recall seeing this photo prior to finding it in Betty's archive a couple of weeks ago, but I'm so glad I found it. It brought back nice memories for me of the couple - especially to see them so young and apparently carefree together.
A lovely couple... and a nice photo of them both to treasure.
