Looking back at photographs of long ago summers spent on Brighton beach I suddenly noticed something. I have been trying to catalogue the photos into date order, and have noticed some were taken around the same time. Thank goodness for whoever wrote the dates on the reverse of the photos, I would guess it to be my grandmother, Annie Cleeve.
Here are a couple of photographs taken on Brighton beach on the 5th August 1931 of Annie Cleeve and her daughter, Nancy Dora Dinnis.
By zooming in I noticed Annie and Nancy were wearing dresses made from the same material.
Then I looked back at photos taken the previous year and noticed
Nancy is wearing the same dress. I am now wondering if Annie was good with a needle and thread and made the dresses from some material, or if she knew someone who was a dressmaker?
