A recovered memory!
I have a very poor memory of my own past -- which is why I write a lot down. I have a particularly poor memory for my earliest life. But I have just now for some reason remembered something from when I was about 3 or 4. I think it is my earliest memory.
At that time there were a lot of advertiserments in the newspapers and magazines which just showed the head of a lady -- presumably advertising hats, cosmetics, soap etc. They showed what sculptors call a "bust" of a lady -- a cut-off figure.
These used to upset me,. I used to cry over these "broken ladies". My mother used to try to explain it to me and she must have eventually succeeded.
