Happy Birthday Tess ~ 11 August, 1921 ...


My Mum was born 11 August 1921 ...
her Dad called her Tess ...
after the role his favourite actress Mary Pickford played ...
in the movie Tess of the Storm Country in 1914 ...
this pic from 1935 ...
shows her sadness ...
her Dad was killed on his way home from work ...
taken in Martin Place in 1941 ...
Tess epitomised style & fashion. 
My Dad always said Mum "was the best sort in Bondi" ...
             hope she's having a Glen Fiddich with the old boy today ...
she deserves a double!
Happy Birthday Tess
