Dancing for Joy on VP Day

On the 75th anniversary of VP Day we remember those who defended our nation from 1939-1945. 

A request this morning from a cousin for a copy of a photo of my mother on VP (Victory in the Pacific Day) reminded me that I should share the image on my blog again.

When Peace was announced my mother, Elsie aged 22, was at work in Sydney's General Post Office in Martin Place. Mum and her co-workers went into the street to join the crowds celebrating there. This photo that was published in a Sydney newspaper shows the joy on the faces of Mum (in the two-tone shoes) and the others who gathered in celebration.

What a joy it must have been. I'm amazed how elegantly she was dressed for work. That photo is a real treasure.
