Cynthia Lennon - Early Years

Early Years

Cynthia Lillian Powell was the youngest of three children born to Charles Powell and his wife Lillian (née Roby) who already had two sons named Charles and Anthony. Charles Powell worked for the GEC company. In 1939, Lillian Powell was sent to Blackpool after World War II had been declared, and lived in a small room in a bed-and-breakfast on the Blackpool seafront. After the birth, the Powell family moved to a two-bedroomed semi-detached house in Hoylake; a middle-class area on the Wirral Peninsula that was considered "posh" by those in Liverpool.

At the age of 11, she won an art prize in a competition organised by the Liverpool Echo. One year later she was accepted into Liverpool's Junior Art School, which was also attended by Bill Harry, later editor of Liverpool's Mersey Beat newspaper.

Famous quotes containing the words years and/or early:

    If you feed a man, and wash his clothes, and borne his children, you and that man are married, that man is yours. If you sweep a house, and tend its fires and fill its stoves, and there is love in you all the years you are doing this, then you and that house are married, that house is yours.
    Truman Capote (20th century)

    On the Coast of Coromandel
    Where the early pumpkins blow,
    In the middle of the woods
    Lived the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo.
    Two old chairs, and half a candle,—
    One old jug without a handle,—
    These were all his worldly goods:
    In the middle of the woods,
    Edward Lear (1812–1888)
