About Jackie Dinnis

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.

    These are lovely. I particularly like the shot of your mum and dad in the deck chairs. They look so happy.

    • That is one of my favourites too! They were on their honeymoon on the Isle of Wight in 1949. The start of good times for them after World War 2.

        I love the way our parents’ generation dressed for the beach. Here, people now dress more causally for a wedding, and I think it’s quite sad. They look like a very happy couple.

      • yes, I often think that too. I wish I could make myself bother more about getting ‘dressed up’ just to go to the shops, like Mum did. They were a devoted couple 🙂

        I know what you mean. I love looking at old street photography; seeing how beautifully dressed everyone seemed to be for even the most casual activity. Now, it’s not totally unheard of for people to go to the shops in their pajamas. And I must admit I’ve been guilty of driving my son to school in my jammies if he’s missed the bus.
