On This Day – A Birthday Party

While the current travel restrictions are in place I have no new stories to post so what I thought that I would do is to go through my picture archives and see where I was on this day at any time in the last few travelling years.

With stored digital images this is quite straightforward because all picture files have a date but it is not so easy for scanned images of old photographs.  In this case however I can be absolutely certain and say that on Monday 15th June 1959 I was celebrating my fifth birthday with a cake and a party at our house in Chislehurst Avenue in Leicester.

Here I am with my friends John and Michael Sparks and my little sister Lindsay.  I wrote a post about birthday parties some time ago.

I also know exactly where I was on Sunday 15th June 2014, which also happened to be Fathers’ Day that year and my sixtieth birthday…

60th Birthday
