At School aged 6

 Mum went to school at the William Street school in Granville. It was the same school that my sisters and I went to in the fifties. When we went there it was called Granville Central Public School and one of the original students way back in the 19th century had been Dad’s grandfather, Walter Pegler. Mum started school when she was five and here she is almost smiling. I say “almost smiling” because during Mum’s almost 85 years of life, she was nearly always smiling, or just about to. 2nd from right, 2nd row from the front.
