I have looked at this photo and I think it could be a bit of trick photography, those children look very well dressed for a pre 1960s photo, please prove me wrong!!

Tom, not sure what you mean. That is exactly the type of clothes I wore in the late 50s, complete with snake belt.

Which sort of clothes, Norm, the boy's or the girl's.

Strange indeed that a girl of perhaps 6 or 7 should be smoking a Capstan full strength on the suspension bridge.
