Memories of Winifred May (Humm) Holder...

...that's my Gran. I remember her with great fondness today as it would have been her 113th birthday. She was born in 1900. Sadly she died just two weeks after her 74th birthday.

I have been working hard scanning and searching for details relating to over 400 photographs lent to me by my cousin over the last few months. This has shed light on her life and that of many other relatives for both the Holder and Humm families.

Here she is with my mother Mary, her youngest child.

 This is a photo I took of her and my grandfather in their back garden with my first camera and film (1970)
 Ernest and Winifred on their wedding day 1929

Here is the over skirt from Gran's wedding dress, which I treasure and will pass on the my children. Such amazing detail, coffee chiffon fabric and cream lace with pleating and embroidery.

Thanks for reading.
