JAMES STEVENSON 3649
This is James Stevenson in 1950 heading into his home out at Millisle with
James Junior his fourth child James was a very hands on man and loved helping
with the children.
Visitors, Jimmy was always having visitors to stay for a holiday and this
time it was his brother Jack and his children over from England.
That's Jimmy on the left, then Margaret her brother John and her daddy Jack
Stevenson. Holiday's at Jimmy's and Mona's was great says Margaret.
Mona taught us French while Jimmy taught us to play Whist and many boards
games, it was exciting for remember we didn't have TV or computers in the
1950's. Jimmy was the warmest, most unflappable person I have ever met and
made everyone round him feel calm, they were great times and wonderful memories
JACK STEVENSON 3651
Out in the back garden of his brother Jimmy's at Millisle is Jack Stevenson
standing on two stones which were grinding the corn into flour. Perhaps
they came from the Windmill in Millisle or another one, this was back in 1950.
Here's Jimmy Stevenson in 1950 in his back garden at Millisle standing on
top of two old grinding stones that were used for grinding flour.
JUST DOLLY AND US 4026
You would know it's 1949 by looking at the photograph
of on the left Ruth Stevenson, on the right Ann Stevenson and of course in
the middle is dolly sadly no name. The reason it's 1949, were would you see
little girls happily enjoying themselves in a field full of daisies and clover.
If you closely you can see Ann has a daisy chain, how many kids of today know
what a daisy chain is.
