71

It's my Mum's birthday today. This cute, smiling little girl first appeared on the scene in 1938.
Mum shares her birthday with Georgette Heyer (one of mum's favourite authors), John Craven, Sir Trevor McDonald, Madonna and Ulrika Jonsson. Quite a mixture there.
Also on this day, the Peterloo Massacre occurred in Manchester during the Parliamentary Reform demonstrations of 1819. The first transatlantic telegraph was inaugurated by Queen Victoria and US President James Buchanan in 1858 and the Klondike Gold Rush started after gold was discovered in the Yukon Territory of Canada in 1898.
Also, one year ago mother turned 70 and was snapped tippling the bubbles!
Happy 71st Birthday Mum!
