Advent Door 23

Mabel and Dave Howells, Rita's parentsNot so much a ‘door’ but a lovely ‘over the garden gate’ photograph today!

This lovely couple are Mabel and Dave Howells, part of the family that adopted my mother. When Jack and Winifred Howells adopted her they already had three children of their own: Lorenza (known as Bob), Fred and Dave.

The family lived in Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea in Sussex. The home was right on the seafront, I went there many times to visit my grandmother and the family.

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.
