Photos bring memories back to life. Each photo tells a different story, sometimes things you don’t always like to remember.
The photo that I have chosen is of a young girl in a pretty formal dress. She is holding a packet of Minties, her favourite lollies. Her grandma gave them to her right after she performed in a concert for her dancing school.
