About this memory

Frances Swanson.

“Frances Swanson probably about seventeen years old here. Her mother was a dressmaker and made many of her clothes.

“Frances boasted that she had an eighteen inch waist in her teenage years. She was only 4ft 11″ tall and took size two in a shoe. Does she have a ‘Marcel Wave’ in this photo?” – Margaret Munro (née Watt) [2008]
