This photo was purchased from James Lowe (photographers) The Wiend, Market Place, Wigan. The lady on the left was one of the teachers. The girl front far right is Elizabeth Taylor, behind her is Janice Ashcroft, directly on Janice's right myself (Christine McGugan - flowers in left hand). In front of me is Anne Connor, don't know the girl in front of Anne - both hands on flowers. Who are the others? Was this 1958?59?

James Lowe was my Dad. This photo would have been taken about the time I was born. Great photo - thank you for letting me see a part of my family history.

Does anyone have Ann Connor's or Ken Brown's contact details?

This is just a wild guess, but could the Anne Connor referred to actually be Ann Connor, and was her married name Ann Maguire? If so she may be my second cousin born and raised in Wigan, who became a teacher in Yorkshire, and was, sadly stabbed to death by one of her own pupils as she was teaching a lesson.a couple or so years ago. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiqv7WL_N_wAhVJ5uAKHY-5CA8QFjAAegQIBhAD&url=https%3A%2F%2Fen.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2FMurder_of_Ann_Maguire&usg=AOvVaw1tdudPMNJeLOsWAXDoay_2 The sadness of this is overwhelming. As a retired teacher myself, even more so when I consider the horror of it all.
If this is a link to Anne/Ann then i am truly sorry to impart such news
