About this memory

Elizabeth Mobbs with her granddaughter Laura Muir.

"The visits to home were not very often but it was a chance for parents to see first child. The door in the background led onto what was classed as a scullery, two steps led into it - cooker, sink, benches, etc, and cupboards. Another six steps led to the top back door, other side of that was stone steps, fifteen leading to back yard - coal house beneath steps and an outside toilet. Another door on outside wall led to cobbled back lane.

"The chair sat on in photo was one of a suite - popular at the time. The mirror above had been there since I was a child." - Evelyn Muir (née Mobbs)
