Muriel and Charlie Webb

A few years ago my Nanny (my grandmother) gave me her old computer, on it there was a great deal of old family photos. The computer itself has long since died but I was able to dig up some of the photos recently so I thought I would share.

My nanny Muriel. I'd like to think that I look a bit like her. :D

Nanny and her sister Joan.

My Grandad Charlie.

Nanny, What a betty!

This just looks like the best holiday ever.

Arn't those glasses amazing?!

Grandad and a friend of his in Germany.

This photo was saved as The Custard House Gang. Nanny tells me The Custard House was the name of a pub where she used to go dancing every Saturday.

On their Wedding day.

I may be a little bias but I think she looks just amazing.
I hope I look as beautiful on my wedding day.

Nanny and my dad, Leslie.

Look how smart dad looks!

Flash forward to the late seventies. Left to right:

There you have it, the Webbs!
I hope you enjoyed,


  1. these are so fantastic! I love how they capture the changing fashions and the growing family. You totally look like your nan! I adore her wedding ensemble. So unique and again reflects the spirit of the age in an incredible way.

  2. These are great photos and you SOO look like your nanny. I thought it was you in the first few photos!

  3. These are lovely photos. Thank-you for sharing them. You DO look like her - a lot. =D

  4. Your Nanny was a bombshell! Love those bathers with the white trim. I agree, definite family resemblance.
