Today's collection is three treasured photographs and I apologise in advance because it is tinged with a little sadness, as all of these special people have passed away. However, they left me with very happy memmories of the time we shared whilst they where here on earth.
  1. Lillian Mulcahy (nee Gilbert): This is my nanna, my dads, mother. I don't know how old she is in the photograph, maybe late teens or very early twenties. There is an inscription in the right hand corner in her handwriting which reads "To Will love Lil" It is obviously a photograph she gave to my grandfather. I wonder if this was during there courtship? 
  2. William Mulcahy: This is my grandad, my dads, father. Again I don't know how old he is. I think he was in the Royal Army Veterinary Corps as I have tried to zoom in on his cap badge but I am not 100% sure. I have another photo of him mounted on a horse however they are not just photographs they are postcard, sadly without any writing on them. I remember him telling me something about looking after horses and being able to braid their manes and tails but I was only a little girl. Sadly he passed away when I was 8 years old. It was the first time my heart was broken he adored me and I adored him.
  3. Denis Mulcahy and Margaret Mulcahy (nee Johns): This is my mum and dad on a night out in the early sixties probably taken in the Wookey Hollow pub in Liverpool, apparently it was one of their favourite places when they where courting. 
I love these photographs I don't have many from the past. Sadly I don't have any photographs of my mums, mother and father but I know someone who might be able to help me complete my maternal photograph tree.

I love old photographs Susan and these are lovely. Like so many people we have family pictures where we can not name everyone which is a shame. xx
