  Comments Hello Ken i knew the Rutters by name on Peel st but i dont know if i would recognize you.The one Rutter i would recognize is probably your sister.She was a friend of a distant relative of mine and the last time i saw her was in Worsley Hall in my relatives house.That was over thirty years ago so i hope she is still alright.I have forgot her first name.I have been in touch with Kayleigh on the other forum in the private mail,i was in the same class as her brother Terry.Take a look at the photo of Albert st in 45 and let me know if there are any Rutters on there i might know them.I am in the bottom right hand corner watching.

  Comments I never received an identification number he first time so am not sure whether I am officially registered. Just in case I went to Rose Bridge Methodist Junior school and then Rose Bridge School during 1948 - 1957. I lived in Peel Street & Manchester Road then moved to Lower Ince. Ran Ince Parish Church Lads Brigade and then the Boys Brigade. Married Maureen Green (Head Girl at Rose Bridge School) Sunday School Teacher at Belle Green Mission Church and we both ran "The Jinx Club" at Belle Green. Anyone remember me?

  Comments What an interesting site. There are so many different things to look at. I have been watching my husband Ken looking at your site over the last cuople of weeks and thought I might register in my own name. I have a considerable amount of old photographs of schools, walking days, old family members etc over the next few weeks I will try and put as many as I can on for other peoples enjoyment and reminiscing. I originate from Belle Green Lane and moved to Coppull Moor when I get married to Ken in 1971.

  Comments My friend in England sent me some websites. I am absoloutely thrilled with what I found in pictures, however, they were much more recent.
I have a photograph of a group of boys and girls with teacher: one little girl holding the sign "Wesylean Infant School Ashton." The picture must be 100 years old if not older.
My grandfr., Charles KING born 1847/8 don't know the month,have May, June and July documented on different census.
He was from London.Don't know his parents names.
I think he is in the picture when compaired to my young brother's picture.
The website is encouraging. Hope someone can tell me where Ashton is located county wise, in England.
