Family History: The 1970s, Timperley and Sandbach, Cheshire - 24th January 2020

It's the 1970s, or thereabouts, and there's a very early memory of a holiday in Malvern, aged around two or three. There's then a trip to somewhere near Newquay, then just one photo from the house on Greenhill Road in Timperley, Greater Manchester. In the middle are some random school photos, then it's Neil and Caroline's wedding and finally another memorable holiday to somewhere near Malton in the North Riding of Yorkshire. There are also four previously-unknown black and whites from around 1970 which were darkroom-printed from the original negatives in 2020, making it probably 50 years since they were last seen by anyone. These include the only photo known to exist of Granny's mobile home caravan, out in the woods of Matchams
