Is that Church Street, looking towards Gilbert Street (Peter Street off to the right)?
Yes, the the parish church would be to the right of the picture.
When I took the picture in the 60s I never realised at the time that the little girl the third from the left would end up as my wife! We've now been married for 32 years.
Yes she has a twinkle in her young eyes.
Bill, you must have been very young aswell when you took this picture, good on you, and thanks for preserving such memories.
Just to inform -- the owner of the invalid vehicle in the background was Donald Atherton. I remember him getting his first one with three wheels and hand operated chain drive with a waterproof cover over his legs. Memories eh ?
Hi, I'm the girl in the middle of the picture are there any other people out there that went to St. Peters Sunday school?
Yes I went to St Peter's Sunday school I remember you well Ann
Ann was your mum Mary? If so she worked with my mum at Roberts at Hindley green turners factory, we visited when she lived on Liverpool Road my mum was Sally Lee. Xx
Yes my mum was Mary and she worked at Turners. We must have gone to Sunday school together. I think I walked every year until I was about 10 or 11!
For anyone who may be interested... here's a link to the colourised version of the photo. Thank you for all of your comments on the original. https://ibb.co/92zVWY5
Sorry. It appears the website I uploaded the colourised photo too managed to lose it! Here's a new link. https://ibb.co/PcbqJN8
What a lovely photo. It's a shame that walking days are no longer popular. The children used to love being involved and it also help to strengthen communities.
