Picnic in the Essex countryside

Three generations of Shinns

A new old picture has just been added. It’s too late for inclusion in the forthcoming ‘History of Thundersley and Daws Heath’, although the Shinns will have their own historic page.

A rather youthful Roger Shinn with his Dad Sydney Shinn ‘making the brew’   and his grandparents Bernard and Louise Shinn, photographed in 1948 somewhere in the Essex countryside next to a hay stack. In Roger’s words: “Bit dodgy with a primas stove, methinks.” But that was before Health and Safety.
