Some New photos from '59

Christmas Party. Cudham Hostel:1959 from West Ham YHA Group on Vimeo.
December 1959 - a Christmas Party at Cudham Hostel. The pictures number just a few, the warden Elsie is seen here in one photo looking at a present we bought her, it was a book we think.
Those were the days, 57 years ago now in 2016.

Daisy, Daisy, Give me your answer do!
I'm half crazy, All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage, I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat of a bicycle made for two.
