    I am one of the little girls looking at the tortoises I am the one with the Big Bow and long black hair standing next to a blond curly haired girl. Apparently lots of people who lived down my street went to the pictures to see me as we did not have television at the time. It was lovely to see this as I was too young to remember being taked there by my Aunt and Uncle. Thank you Pathe News. Mrs Paula Johnson
