Celebrating 90 years // Grandma’s Birthday Meal

Last weekend my Grandma celebrated her 90th birthday. Eighteen family members and close friends gathered to celebrate together a Singleton Lodge in Poulton-le-Fylde; it was great to see everyone together.

I thought I’d do some research into the things that happened 90 years ago back in 1926 when my Grandma was born. A significant year of firsts; many of which we take for granted now or don’t event use..

  • The first Winnie the Pooh book was published
  • The first British Grand Prix is held just near Weybridge 
  • The first red telephone boxes were introduced in London
  • The very first two way transatlantic phone call was made from London to New York
  • The General Strike begins in support of the Coal Miners strike 
  • The fist demonstration of television was given by John Logie Baird 
And to follow, some photos of us at the meal which I took on my Nikon.
