I was wondering if anybody remembered MINNIE SMITH who lived in 2/37 RUSTON STREET.  Her husband was George Smith.

 

Minnie had two daughters, by her first husband Charles Coleman. I don’t know how long she had lived in Ruston St.  but many years before she had lived in William St. Her daughter’s names were MARTINA, and MINNIE (jnr) at the age of 20 Minnie died of hydrocephalus. I don’t know what happened to MARTINA but as a child she toured THEATRE’S with her mother and her aunt KITTY, (my grandmother) even going to USA several times.

 

MINNIE SMITH died in 1950.

 

If anyone can shed any light on this family I would be delighted.  I do not have a single photo of her or Minnie jnr. to be able to see them would be a bonus, can you help?

Ruston Street, the back of the picture says Jubilee party 1935, but as Mom was born in 1934 she is clearly older than one,

so I think it must be the Coronation of George VI

Mom was living with her parents in Ruston Street then, the little girl in the white party hat second from extreme left is my Mom, Shirley Ratheram nee Vizor,

the tall woman standing next to her eating is my Nan Rose Vizor, nee Taylor,

the only other people Mom knows there are the woman on the extreme left who is Mrs Brown,

and the two small children to the right of Nan are Mrs Browns children Margie and Bernard

 

Again Ruston Street Coronation Mom is this time on the right still wearing her hat
