I’ve always loved this photo and was really pleased to find it in an album my dad sent to me recently. He’d written underneath that the man on the far left is his friend Joe Malone, and of course I recognise my dad on the right, but I have no idea who the others are. They’ll all be in their 80s now.
I don’t have sisters, so I’ve always been fascinated by my mother’s relationship with her four sisters. Seeing these old photos of them as girls just reinforces how close the bonds of family are.
