Another picture kindly shared by Elizabeth Weaver. This is 1958 and Elizabeth is around 10 years old standing at her gate at Victoria Street, not far from the former railway bridge. (just out the picture to the right)
Elizabeth added, “That was a wool dress and it was yet another itchy garment. It also had a huge hem so it could be let down and I could wear it for years. Wearing grey school socks and slippers too. The height of fashion!”
