Wishing people well

I haven't been on this wonderful website long, but when I see people like this, I just want to wish them well through the years. I hope their lives were/are good ones. This photo is so tender and lovely. I'm not sure I've ever seen a better composed photo of a mother and child. The genuine affection and confidence is evident.

What a photo!

This is a beautiful photo and that's all that needs to be said.

We used to call it the Radford Arsenal

This was taken at about the time the arsenal was first built. It's still in operation today making artillery and so on for the armed services.
