My mother, Patricia McMahon, died suddenly last Friday, 15th November. She was 80.
That’s her in the photo above with my late Dad at Butlin’s Mosney in 1964. Regular visitors to Brand New Retro will know that this photo was used as our main banner for over 2 years until it was recently replaced by, in her words, “some new fancy logo thing”.
Patricia supplied loads of source material for Brand New Retro. Just last week we scanned and published her Butlin’s Souvenir Progamme from our 1965 family holiday in Mosney. She enjoyed that her collection of old magazines, many of which she had held onto for decades, was now being put to good use.
Her contribution towards Brand New Retro is just one of many things for which she will be very sadly missed.
