My mother was Olive Groundwater. If a larger version is available I would appreciate it.
My grand parents ran the Longhope Hotel for a number of years between the wars.

photo from South Walls School 1933 shows my mother Violet Seatter (centre row) She died when I was 2 and a quarter yrs old and my brother was 9 months so we never knew her. We have limited knowledge of the family. Interesting to note that headteacher was a Mr Alexander Seatter !! Is there a larger version of this school photo I wonder? This is emotional stuff!!!
