Jobs for the ladies

Mum in flyspray advert in the 1960s!

Here is my Mother (standing) in her first job as a secretary in the 1960s.
She's modeling fly spray for a magazine advert.
(Perhaps they put it on their hair too!)


  1. I hate to say it, but she does look like you with a wig on! What a brilliant photo! x

  2. I love it! Feeling a bit icky at the thought of what horrible chemicals are in that spray! Makes me thing of a Pam Ayres poem called 'My Mother Had a flit gun' x

  3. Yes those chemicals..scary. I hope she wasn't preggy with me...

  4. love this photo!! Everyone so busy at work and your mother with the spray! Funny!
