Then again, it could be neither!
Think it could be Walthew lane,there are only two house's with the bay windows as in the picture.They are just down from the shop on corner of Davies St.Mi Son lives in the one on the right as you look at photo,if it is Walthew lane think they were pit bosses House's in year's gone by
Jem... thank you, I think you may have nailed it.
IS the lad on the far right is FRED WATERWOTH,S son ALAN
I'm not convinced about the two houses in question. These houses do not have stone lintels above the windows and doors they have bricks on their ends. Also the gate posts to these houses are brick.
Appologies I am wrong about the lintels.
Mark... yes it is Alan Waterhouse.
Is the man at the far end of the line Mr Bailey from the St. Nat's junior school,also is it 1951 or 53?
Wigwann... my fault, it is indeed 1951.
It could very well be Mr Bailey, a bit before my time however.
Thanks for the info,now who is the lady on the banner?
I think the lady on the banner is Miss Marsh a Teacher at St Nat's Infants.The boy in the foreground is Dennis Redfern. We were at School together.
I am almost sure the first house after the second bay is 108 Walthew Lane. Lived there with my gran Hannah Walker until I was 7. The next house was Ivy and Albert (can't remember surname) then the Harts (Fanny and Stanley)then Ellison's chippy then Massey's grocers.
OUR HOUSE WAS 106 IVY AND ALBERT BOWDEN WITH MY SELF AND MY SISTER EILLEN
Trevor I remember you and your sister Eileen. I sometimes bump into Hazel Massey (remember her from the shop) in Chorley and I believe she is friends with your sister. Tell your sister I said hello.
