Concrete Nanny Female manual worker from china, dubbed "Concrete Nannies" so called because they adopted kids from poorer families and did manual work. The money was used to give the adopted kids a good education. The hats worn were usually red.
Dakotas Mums Netball team the Dakotas. Netball amongst the wives was very popular. Louise Manning is front row far right. Phyllis Kieft is second from left on back row. If you recognise yourself or are in touch with anyone in this photo, then Dave would like to hear from you.
