My First Photos [Nov. 21st, 2008|10:19 am]
Tony Grist
These are pictures I took with my very first camera- a Kodak Box Brownie. The year must be 1957 or 58. The grumpy tot is my sister Jenny. I remember our garden in Croydon as being enormous- but clearly it wasn't. It sloped steeply up the side of the valley, to the woods of Croham Hurst at the top. Under the apple tree where my parents and sister are sitting I once watched a dead hawk moth being eaten by ants. The corgi's name was "Becky".

Your sister looks so out of sorts.

Funny how our childhood haunts are so much bigger in memories than they really were. I thought my childhood garden went on forever but when I go back there now it looks about half the size I remember.

Our garden was cut out of the hillside, in terraces. We had two lawns, a rose garden, an orchard, a wilderness area and a bit of woodland. It was amazing how much we managed to squeeze in.
