‘School Picture’ is this week’s theme for the GBE2:Blog On group, so here’s one of mine:
The photo was taken as we paraded onto the field. I think there were about 12 ‘couples’. All the girls wore identical dresses, blue and white check pattern, with frills from each shoulder to the waist, and puff sleeves, and we had white bonnets, short white socks and white canvas shoes. The boys wore white shirts, blue ties, and short grey pants.
I remember being very nervous beforehand, but we had been well trained. Our maypole dances all went well and we managed not to get any of the ribbons tangled!
By the way, my partner was called Edward, and everyone teased me about him being my 'boyfriend'. I wonder what happened to him and where he is now!
