Little Bo Peep lived across the road from 'the mission'. Her picture is in the same album as the others I've posted but I can't see her on the photo of all the Sunday School children.
Maybe she popped home and missed it.
Years later she had a posh frock shop in Standish.

Cathy, was the girl in the picture called Barbara? I can't remember her surname, but I do remember her having the shop in Standish.

Yes Maureen, Barbara's of Standish. The last time I went through Standish her shop was still there, but her daughter has it now.

Thanks Cathy, I think we are both talking about the same girl.

Barbara was Barbara Green, originally from Poolstock Lane, Worsley Mesnes.
