Wordless Wednesday: Day Trip on the Thames


This photo shows my grandmother who is clutching a handbag, Lucy Harriett Sinclair (nee Dartnell) (1883 – 1984  yes she lived for 101 years) with Mrs. Warnes.  For my Gran, Mrs. Warnes was like a second mother to her after her mother died when Gran was 14.

I know this was a day trip sailing on the River Thames but no idea when it was.  I love the clothes and hats!!  😉



  1. What a wonderful picture, Chris. Thank you for sharing it. It’s brightened my morning!

    PS I’m sure we’re all glad to have you back!

    • Hallo Ann,

      Lovely to hear from you and it’s nice to know that everyone is pleased I am back. 😉 I never wanted to be away and was completely lost without the internet!!

      I’m pleased you like the photo of my Gran and her second Mum. I have other photos of them on that trip and everyone looked like they enjoyed it, but it looks a bit windy! I’m sure Mrs. Warnes is hanging onto her hat in this photo.
