Hello All,  I just discovered this old photo from World War 2,  of relatives who moved to the outskirts of London (Harmondsworth, Middlesex) to feel safer from the threat of bombing raids in the city.  Audrey, Frank, Bebe and our Mum, Betty.   
      From their expressions, it looks like they were able to feel carefree in their home,called  "The Quinneys", on Hatch Lane. 
       Thanks for your help,if you could add a bit of color that would be great ...Cheers!   Bert

Here's another version Bert.  I didn't put any color in the background and instead blurred it slightly.  This tends to highlight and emphasize the subjects. Your Mum is a very pretty lady who looks like she is happy and having fun!
