Isn't that the fingerpost behind, the row of shops to the right and the ventiilation chimney in the background?

The Aspull photos seem to have been taken on Bolton Rd.

Ferretti's ice cream van seems to be doing a roaring trade.

On second looks, it certainly is Aspull, sorry about that.

St Elizabeth's - the girl on the right looks like Helen Gibson, and it could be June Winstanley on the left
