Cynthia in the 20s

This is a collection of photos of her daughter that Carol saved, showing her as she grew older in the 1920s in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

First year in England

Carol must have given these to Cec at some point, because the caption on the back reads:

Then come some snaps in the garden in summertime when she’s a year or two older.

And another letter to Santa, written a bit later, and dated 1925.

Finally, a more posed picture of an older Cynthia, the author of the letters:

Also the author of the stories!
