Throwback Thursdays: 1987 favourites

Is Throwback Thursday theme still relevant for 2015?  Hope so .. I’m having fun going back to the old photos …

The number of photographs in this year increased!!   Taking photographs became important for me to record our family in pics to send to my Mum and Dad in Zimbabwe.    No cell phones, Skype, or any other means of showing off family photographs except in print .. and the mailman !!

These are amongst my favourites for 1987 …
