When I was 7

The only existing image of me as a small child.....note the brooding sullen face.
Even then I distrusted the camera.
I'm the one on the extreme right.
(One of my sisters on the extreme left)

This must have been 1971-72
Look behind us (take note Hungarian folk that labour under the illusion that all is/was milk and honey in the West) and you get an idea of the poverty of the environment.
This area actually looked a bit better than others I had grown up in, here, the rate and mice population were minimal(unlike Parkhead where I distinctly remember mice running over my bed) and only six families shared one toilet.
