Thank you so much,  Pat, Peter and japelakes for your lovely restores  :)
 
Ive just remembered that it would have been my aunty's 120th birthday on the day I found these photos - spooky. She used to spoil me with treats and presents - and often taking  me to Lewis''s in Piccadilly,  Manchester and buy me toys and then a knickerbocker glory in the restaurant.

Thank you all once again for restoring them for me.

 :)

Just found this tiny pic which must have been on the same day. I've got a larger restored version on my Mac.

I don't need this one restored.
