Old Film:: Vanda Tronerud (1950s)

My mother was a nurse before marrying my father. The photographs on this page are scanned from 6cm x 9cm film negatives that were made by my paternal grandmother Elvie Ruth Bonner (1901-1986).

My mother in her younger years

Full height view of my mother in her younger years

I can’t say that my passage through this World has done much for my mother’s peace of mind. She was too poor to afford me as a baby, I was a particularly troublesome teenager and I brought a whole lot of grief for her right into my forties. But mothers soldier on, regardless. I know my mother loves me unconditionally. That’s enough. All I can do is apologise. The fifty year old me wishes that I’d made life much better for her over the years. She’s a good woman.
