Here are the instructions:

2. Scroll to the 10th photo
3. Post the photo and the story behind it
4. Tag 5 or more people to continue the thread.
Now, I must explain that I have about 22 000 photo files, filed very neatly on my computer. So neatly in fact that I can locate any single photo in under a minute. I wish I was so good at housekeeping, anyhow, the photo. Here it is...
Oh yeah, it's an oldie! I love old photos so I have scanned quite a lot of Mum's and my Nan's photos. I'm still trying to get some of Grandma's (that's her in the pink) and my mother-in-law's.
So...about the photo. This is my Mum's family in 1968. My Mum is in blue, she is 19. She was a bridesmaid for her elder (by 2 years) sister. Her three brothers are in the middle. And my Grandfather (who we lost almost 5 years ago) and my Grandma are on the right. This was a black & white photo that was coloured by hand. Don't you love how they did that? It ends up looking like a mix of a photo and a painting. I love the fashions from the 60s and I think this photo is just gorgeous. Mum had it on the wall when we were growing up and I always admired it.
By the way, my aunty made her wedding dress. Wasn't she clever? Mum told me there were a few hissy fits before she finished it and I think it was the last thing she ever sewed!!
