Great photos. I remember that basketball match we mothers played against our daughters, we had a couple of the husbands and fathers umpiring it. The girls did not stand a chance, but I remember being knackered after it...But really good fun....lo.

I remember Maude Matthews, she was from Belfast and had three girls.
The youngest had fuzzy white hair.
