Florence and Ann - 1953

Ann (left) and Florence

If the size of the hats are anything to go by the summer of 1953 must have been warm on Ward 2 balcony.

This photo of Florence and myself turned up in the photo collection of Norma Lewis.
I am 12 years of age and Florence 15.

I am back in bed after a relapse but at least I am on the balcony, not on blocks, and I am allowed to sit up and even wash myself - note the white tin basin.

So far there has been no news of Florence. One girl thought she had died. It would be lovely if this was not true and she is alive and well.
We were very good friends.
