Brothers and Sisters



Ride a Cock-Horse

Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady upon a white horse.
Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.


This charming picture  of my sister and brother and was taken aboout 1933 judging from their ages.  It once was common for men to come around with a pony and a camera to take cute photographs of children.  My brother was deathly afraid of horses so it’s something of a miracle that he smiled for this picture!
