The ponies - 1956
Edgar, the Head Gardener, with Tosca and Lady
Pam riding Lady
Christine Bennett and Beryl Rowlands with Lady. What are they trying to do with the pony?
These photographs of teenage girls enjoying (illicit) time riding Dr Williams daughters ponies shows just how the sanatorium regime had slackened off by 1956.
Mary, one of Dr Williams' daughters has already contacted us saying she was surprised to learn that her ponies were being ridden while she and her sister were away in boarding school.
( If Mary is reading this I wonder if you would be good enough to email me again- several attempts to contact you have resulted in "bounced" emails. Thanks! Dr Reeves would like to interview you).
