Photo of 1947 Christmas Pantomime at Abergele Sanitorium

I received this fabulous photo from Mrs Gunta Binks. She writes:

“Thought this might be of interest to you, I am going through papers of my late Mother who sadly passed away in September 2014 two weeks short of her 90th birthday.  On the back is written Christmas 1947 Manchester Children’s Abergele Sanatorium, North Wales, Pantomime.  My mother’s name was Erna Darzins (Latvian refugee, who would have been 23 in 1947)) she is the lady at the back right hand side with the lion on her head! She talked fondly of her time in Abergele and no doubt the Welsh air did her good.”
