I've puzzled as to where this photo., was taken, I realised only recently it's
Dicconson St., the bay windowed house on the right is the dentists,they past this on there way back to the Parish after singing Faith Of Our Fathers and The National Anthem on the Market Square.Whit Monday was a very special day, we lost part of our heritage when it ceased .Happy days!.
