Not a very clear picture, unfortunately. Procession just passing George Street. Doctor Hyde's surgery on left. We used to ride home-made "trolleys" over those cobbles going "Aaaaahhhh!" so our voices would shake! Weren't we easily pleased in those days?!

The lady at the far left is my mum,Stella Hurst.Agnes Fairchild (wife of Alan Fairchild,who taught Irene and me at Ince Central)was also in the choir.I think it is around 1962 or1963.
