Valda Winter, March 1940

DESCRIPTION: two photographs of my grandma, Valda Winter (before she married and become Valda Phillips)
DATE: aged about 19, the top one is around 1940, the bottom one March 1940
CURRENT OWNER OF THE ITEM: Alan Phillips
STORY/ABOUT:  both of these were actually the thick old-style slides, and were taken by Valda’s brother, Harold Roy Winter in Adelaide, South Australia. The bottom one was in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. And as Valda was a dressmaker, it should be mentioned that she made the dress that she’s wearing in the bottom photo.

      Yes, she certainly was. She really loved doing all the fidldly type stuff on dresses, and she complains about the quality of dresses these days, no doubt they aren’t what they used to be.
