Top picture shows a young Nena (center) with Carol Hanson behind left.

The second photograph is of the Junior section of the Newhaven Carnival.

Can anyone confirm the exact year these pictures were taken?

I think that might be me on the right next to Nena in the carnival. Carol, Nena and I lived in the Elphick Road/Lee Cottages area as kids and played together. We look about 8 or 9 so it would be about 1955.

Would this Nena be Nena Sheppard? It looks like my mum and she lived in Elphick Road. I've not seen any photo's of her at this age. But it looks like her. Can anyone tell me if it is my mum? Thanks.

Thanks Brian. It's amazing to see photos of my mum at such a young age. Thank you so much. x
