Lorna Taylor

Lorna was in the dancing school of Babs Wilson. Each year they do a show at the Music Hall. Bab’s school was on Thistle Lane off Albert Street. Lorna went for four to five years. Babs was famous in Aberdeen, she took children on to take dancing exams but Lorna didn’t take any exams. Lorna was 8 in this photo and she remembers the Music Hall being such a big place and being scared on stage. She thinks the photo is of a tableau they were made to stand in before presenting a ‘little dance’. Her mother was in the audience but her father was away in the War.
