Jim and Tom

My dad, Tom was the youngest of 11 children when he was born in 1940. He had a non-identical twin brother Jim. Mum came to visit last week and she bought this dressing table set that belonged to Jim for me to have. Dad and Jim's godparents gave them a set each and my sister, Lisa has dad's set. Dad always said that I looked more like Jim so I'm very happy that I have something of my uncle's. I never got to meet Jim as he was killed in a car accident when he was 18. Dad is the baby with fair hair - they were about 4 1/2 months old in the picture. Next is a photo of dad, Jim and their sister Dot going to church. The last photo is of Dot's wedding in 1956 - dad is on the left and Jim on the right.
