1957 Betty Simpson at Victoria St. Shared by Betty Weaver

Elizabeth Weaver has kindly shared this photo, adding “This is my dear friend Betty Simpson in our front garden in Victoria St. She was wearing one roller skate and I had the other one! Taken with my wee Brownie 127 camera in 1957 or thereabouts. Note the miners going to work at Dixon’s in the background.

Its great to see people such as Elizabeth who were fortunate to have a camera then and being able to capture and share everyday scenes like these. People photos are always the best when they’re captured naturally and un-staged.
