Is that Liptrots in the background?

I think it is, and I also think that a family called Bibby lived in the house with the white trim on the windows at the house near the lampost.

Yes, Bibby's did live in that house, Eunice and Eileen. Is that Olive Corfield on the front left hand side of the picture?

Yes it;s Olive Corfield.She lived in Moss Lane I think the year would be around 58/59.
