REMEMBRANCE DAY: BITTER-SWEET CELEBRATION

A celebratory Peace Tea in the East End of London at the end of the Great War, and in the front are my dear mother and her sisters wearing black bows in their hair for their 19 year old brother. 

There is a very informative post over at Kerrie's Mysteries in Paradise about Remembrance Day here.

This is a wonderful photograph, Norman. Thank you for sharing it. Would you know more precisely where it was taken, perhaps even the street?

Thanks Philip, I think it may have been Bruce Grove, Tottenham but I am not sure.

Thanks for the link Norman. Pictures like these are so evocative of a different time aren't they?
