In this photo we see Alice's daughter, named Alice Mary (often called "Doll" as she was small), holding baby Renee
Alice's father Francis Binning was Scottish and had his own antiques and picture framing business.
Alice Binning's sister was my Aunt Polly whose real name was Mary! This is why the first child was named Alice Mary. I remember Aunt Polly. She had one eye. She died while she was living some flats near Dombey Street.
The original marriage certificate which my mother had in her possession is here
Alice died in 1951 when I was just three so I have no clear memory of her.
The picture was clearly taken at Southend-on-Sea because you can see the splendid Hotel Metropole in the background and below is an early picture of the hotel.
