‘Violet, the little girl at the front, was my grandmother. The other children are her siblings. The older boy, Leonard, at the back was killed in an accident on 28 September 1923 on the Barking Road in Plaistow when he fell under and was run over by a trailer attached to a steam wagon aged only 12. We estimate this photo to be from late 1922 – summer 1923.’
