Well, I was holding onto these as a surprise, but seeing as she's seen them now, here are some pictures of my Nan, Dolly West Shaer, that I did recently. Today seems an appropriate time to share it, what with it being International Women's Day, and my nan has been a bit of a pioneer in her time - she has been involved in pushing forward Special Educational Needs and English as an Additional Language (check out my education training!) teaching in the UK, and been heavily involved in many political and civil rights struggles through the years.
As always, click on the images to see larger versions.
