Grandad Banks - Old Photos

Here is a layout of my grandfather Charles Edward Maddison Banks working in Smithfield meat market as a Porter. Sorting through some old photographs we found several more of my grandfather which I may scrap sometimelater. He was born on 13th September 1897 and died on Christmas day 1961. I never got to know grandad as I was only 19 months old when he died. He had served in the first World War and suffered the rest of his life as a result of mustard gassing. For the page I used Basic Grey Ambrosia papers and letter stickers with some American Craft Thickers silver letters.

Left - My parents with my Dad's parents, Charles with my Nan Margaret. Right - Margaret and Charles.
