Never mind Halsall. I have found some more black and white transparencies of Belle Green Lane from 1958 or earlier. You might turn up on one of them. I am related to Carol but I don't know how exactly. She taught us to swim when we were kids which was handy considering the number of times we fell in the cut, and influenced a liking for books as well. I've not seen her for ages.

Gimme a clue on t'other picture Halsall and I'll try to extract a clearer frame of him. On this one, you all wouldn't look at the camera at the same time - I can step backwards and get a pic of the little girl extreme right looking at camera when the two in the middle aren't. It would be too similar to this one to put it on but I can send if you want.

You need to point him out, Halsall, because there may be a better picture as the walking day procession continues. Is he the chap stood in the doorway on the left in in your pic?
I may not be able to get any better than there is though.

You're not wasting my time - it's freely given.

Lynda is my sister, we have just found the photo of her and will be emailing her to tell her. Our mum says it's walking day and remembers making her dress.
