ca 1954 Canterbury A&P Show, probably 1954 by the look of my ‘gappy’ smile! Left: Irene Watts; Right: my cousin, Margaret Brown. Going to the show was an annual treat, with a doll on a stick the highlight of the day. This must have been a special year as we both have windmills as well. Note we’re in our best clothes! (Traditional for Show Day) Shirley Temple ringlets as well. Heritage Week 2008 Competition Entry
