This picture shows the procession passing Christopher Street and was taken about 1948. The little girl in the long dress is my cousin Dorothy Jarvis.

Just to say a very nice photo Stuart, capturing the stylish dress of the times.

Hi Stuart, that's my mum! Is that my Nan she's walking with? Thanks to you and Lisa.

Hello Lindsay - No it is not your Nan ( my Aunty Nancy ) in the photo. Have you looked at Street Scenes - Albert Street? Your Mother is the Baby in both photographs. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail.

I think the lady in the darker suit behind the lady with the hat may be my auntie, Beatrice Benyon. I also think the lady in the hat, in front of her is one of two sisters - I am not sure but she may have been called Evelyn or Vivian. My Auntie still lives in Ince I will send this to her and ask.
