Joyce Wilding holding hands with what may be her mother, Winifred Wilding. Joyce was born in Derby in 1944. This Photo was taken in June 1947 in Rhos, making her nearly 3 years old. There is an advert behind her for the “world famous” Wills’s Gold Flake cigarettes, produced at the time by Imperial Tobacco.
This photo of a girl with her hair in ribbons was taken by Sidney Boultwood’s Stickybacks studio at 66 St Peter’s Street in Derby, UK. Like postage stamps, stickybacks were small photographs with a gummed back. The photo dates from the 1910s.
Her name is probably Winifred Cooper Thickpenny, born in Derby 1908. The year before her marriage to Frederick Wilding in 1940, she was living in Belper, Derbyshire, with her widowed father William Thickpenny, a foreman born in 1876. She was recorded as being a Railway Clerk. Her mother had been Lilian Thickpenny (1879 -1933).
