my great grandmother
Inspired by Litrate, I am going to show you some family history.
This is a picture of my great grandmother, on my paternal side.
It was taken at the bottom of my street, in Green Lanes, in Stoke Newington, where I live.
Here is a picture of the place where she had this picture taken, as it looks today.
I love the fact that I live where my great grandmother, whose maiden name was Valerie Stalicka, and her son, my grandfather, lived.
They were from Poland and also Germany, and emigrated from Germany and lived in Stoke Newington around the turn of the last century.
This is my narrative of migration.
