then and now...


These were the Chalkpit Cottages at Holywell, shown above about 125 years ago!


Here are photographs taken of Michael's dear Aunt Min (Great-Great-Aunt, actually, born as Minnie Ethel Florence Boniface in 1890). The one on the left was taken in the very early 1900's and the one on the right with Michael, was taken in 1980. She was the last surviving offspring of 'Old Tom' and Elizabeth Boniface.

This is a bonus photograph, because it is Aunt Min again at the family home on 42 Sidley Road, Eastbourne, in the early 1900's.. Michael took a photograph recently (on the right) showing how the home looks today! Notice the sign by the front door, 'Mrs. Boniface - Laundress'.
