My mother, Grace Ansett (later Coughtrey) in 1929

My mother, aged 19
My mother in 1929, aged 19.  The photo was one of several taken between 1929 and 1931 at Jerome's Studios in Woolwich, where she was a colourist.  (There was no colour photography at that time and photos had to be coloured by hand, if at all).  Of the many jobs my mother had in her life, she always said this was her favourite.
