Family Farewell

1964

About this memory

This picture was taken either in 1964 or 1965. My Dad's brother and his wife were about to emigrate to Australia to join their 2 sons already living there.
They lived in Carrick Knowe and had a big 'going away' party at a local church hall.
The picture shows Peggy and Jimmy Thomson seated, surrounded Jimmy's family. Lt to Rt; my mum, me, Aunty Nan and husband - Uncle Bill, Aunty Bette and partner - Tom, my sister Anne and my Dad. Bette's children Shona and Brian are at the front.
