this is my entry for Theme10 : "SELF PORTRAIT"
and also day one of another 3 part journey.
This is my mum and dad on their wedding day.
Its probably about 51 years ago, about 1955, and the location is probably Hornsey Town Hall, north London.
My dad must be about 36 here and my mum about 22. This was my mum's second marriage. She divorced her first husband (my brother's father) after only a few years together. My dad adopted my brother (who was 8 years older than me) when my brother was 3, (which is why I'm guessing this wedding is 1955).
My dad died in 1970. He had cancer. My mum eventually married a third time and had a daughter, (my sister who is 14 years younger than me). My brother died in 1985 when he was 32. He OD'd on smack. My mum died just last year (2005).
