  1. Nice to see this photo. I remember being very proud to say Carmen Taylor was my relation,she was very pretty! She was my grandmother,Edna Cook,s neice..Harry Cook my grandmothers husband had a dance band,my mother played piano,Eric Maloney,senior driver,instructor with Booth & Fisher played drums for a time.He also took coach tours as far as Switzerland. I was driving a coach in Switzerland when I last saw him (1966-67) I took my PSV driving lessons with B&F Eric was my instructor!.I was born 23 Station Road, in October 1944,in December a V1 Flying Bomb landed,(I believe 5 miles away) and I was showered with plaster.I could ramble on,sorry!!!!

    • David, I am Carmen Taylor’s niece – her younger brother Ray’s daughter! I remember hearing about Aunty Edna and Uncle Harry when I was growing up. I’ve seen this photo before at my Grandma Nellie’s but I was really surprised to find it online! I hope you’re doing well, distance cousin!
