Tribute to Betty

Today would have been my mother's 90th birthday. Here is a photographic tribute to her life, with minimal comment. I'm sure I have other photos, but they will have to join in the fun when they emerge from the clutter. The dates of the early photos are largely educated guesses, purely to be able to put them in the right order.

She was born on 4th February 1917

Levi family 1918
1918ish... She's the little one on her father's knee.

Betty & Madge 1928
1928ish with her big sister Madge

Betty 1930

Betty 1933
1933ish looks like her left side was the good one.

Betty in street 1935

Bride Betty

Picnickers 1940
1940ish looks like a fun picnic, she's the one on the right.
