Today’s Black and White Tuesday Theme is a Sporty one....
Dad posing for cricket but dressed for football! I would guess it is about 1919 as he looks about 12.
Mum (left) playing rounders at Calder c 1924. I’m sure Those gymslips are shorter than the regulation length! They were supposed to touch the ground when you kneeled down with your back up straight!
Calder High School, Liverpool – Upper Va Netball team in 1924. Mum is front right. I like this photo because they look like prime candidates for St Trinians!
Anyone for tennis? Mum and a friend in Calderstones Park, Liverpool, c 1926.
Mum’s office (the Insurance Committee – forerunner of the Family Practitioners’ Committee) tennis tournament – c 1928. Mum is front left.
Mum’s friend Phyllis Hales at an open air baths – possibly New Brighton – c 1928.
I have always thought you had to be a bit mad to be a goalkeeper. Perhaps, since he was my Dad I should use the word eccentric instead! The Furness Withy Shipping League 1931.
And Dad won medals for cycling.
And tug-of-war was a popular pastime on office outings. Lilleshall, 1931 - Mum's offce.
And does a sack race at the same outing count as a sport?
The 1932 office day out at Rhyl saw everyone playing bowls.
Daddy’s home! by MadLittleClown
