From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

MAUREEN ON MONDAY 1/2

Taken not long after we got married in 1971 this was in the back garden of our first house near St.Neots, Cambridgeshire. Maureen would have been in her mid 20’s.at the time and has very much a 70’s. hair style which I actually liked quite a bit. Oh that we both still looked as young as she does here, still it does remind me of why her 'fancied' her in the first place

Maureen has hardly changed at all, Brian...no wonder she is still your Best Gal.
Brian Walbey: She might not agree with the bit about changing Ray but she is still me Best Gal, as you say.
How wonderful to look back 40+ years, Brian! I love this portrait of your lovely wife! My Mom had a hairstyle much like this in the 70's
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. The trouble with hairstyles like this was that with fairly straight hair like Maureens it required a session with the heated rollers before we went out in the morning to work in London smile
This is a wonderful portrait of Maureen... she is still as lovely Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, I'm sure you also feel the same way about your Penny, age doesn't make any difference inside does it.
So nice to see that your are together after all these years Brian. I met my wife in 1971...
Brian Walbey: We seem to be a dying breed these days Richard to still be together after so many years.
I know what you mean about those old hair styles Brian, a bit of nostalgia. Lovely photograph.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. The trouble with hairstyles like this was that with fairly straight hair like Maureens it required a session with the heated rollers before we went out in the morning to work in London.

Of course you fancied her Brian but I admit the style is a little dated now isn't it
Brian Walbey: Yes it is very much an old style now, and of course her hair is now greying but she has decided not to bother with coloured rinses etc.any more.

It just makes me smile ... lovely one Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Ah the seventies smile Nice portrait of Maureen
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
She looks like my cousin, Carol. Amazing!
Brian Walbey: I guess, from what you've written here in the past, Maureen, your cousin and yourself are probably very much young women of that time so perhaps the hairdo is familiar.

As it happened, yesterday I cleaned out a drawer that had some pics of my wife in it - not as young, but so different from what she is today and mostly because of hair style and colour smile
Of course you like that hair style, otherwise you wouldn't have fancied her ...
Brian Walbey: It is nice to look back isn't it. What I do notice is that the ladies usually seem to age much better than we men do, mind you paunches and balding heads don't help matters, the men that is smile

This is a lovely portrait of Maureen - you mention the 1970's, it could be the 50's, too, in my feeling. I love her modest, decent behaviour.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine, Maureen was only just a very few years old when the 50's started, I was a bit older than that !

A lovely portrait, Brian. You are a true romantic.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline.
How very sweet to see Maureen like this back in the day, Brian. Happy memories really do grow old with us, don't they!
Brian Walbey: They certainly do Ginnie, we have plenty like any family, some very joyful and some very sad, like the sad loss of parents, but hopefully we will have a few more years together to notch up some more great memories.
You 'old' romantic you...smile
Brian Walbey: I've known Maureen since November, 1968 Frank, I think I'm allowed to be a bit romantic after all this time, I just hope we still have a goodly number of years left to continue being romantic.

This is a wonderful portrait of Maureen. No wonder you fell on one knee for her wink
Please say HI to Maureen from me.
Brian Walbey: We worked on different floors in the same office building for about two years before I got round to asking her out, that was November, 1968, I guess we must be used to each other by now smile

She's not changed a bit, Brian smile Marriage seems to be not as common as it was back in those days; I believe that there are now more couples living together unwed than those that are wed. Sometimes marriage comes later - often with their offspring there sad
Brian Walbey: Both our two lived with partners for several years. Our daughter and partner drifted apart and she is now married to another guy, but she is still friendly with her ex. Our son and his partner had our Granddaughter but now live apart but are still in daily contact with each other and go out together a lot, but being apart seems to work better for them.
