I can't quite locate this photo. Is it on Poolstock Lane, between Holborn Ave. and Grange Ave?
I was in the choir around the time of the photo, with Gerald Hogkiss, Billie Dawber, Harry Morgan, Willie Sharratt and the best singer of us all, Stanley Heyes.

Jim, I think it is further towards Worsley Mesnes, close to Snowdon Ave and practically opposite the vicarage as was.Remember we used to turn around somewhere in the vicinity of whats now tesco's? The houses on the right are a good clue. By the way I was in the choir at the same time.

Are you rlated to the Wildes who lived on Park Street near the Suckle? I used to mate with Rodney Wilde who lived in Chadwick Street. His dads name was Frank and they moved to Leyland. I was from Byrom St.
