Somewhere in that row were also the Davis family, I was mates with Billy Davis and his dad was the President of Platt Bridge Labour Club... and now I look closer, I *think* it is Mrs Davis in the blue top to the far left?

@ Dennis, I am the son of Bill Davies, and grandson of Nellie and George, who both sadly passed away recently in York. My Dad remembers you well, and has recalled a few stories! Incredible to see Nana in the picture at the old Warrington Road house, not that I remember it, far too young!

Really enjoyed looking at these photos. Brought back some memories. We lived at 103 Walthew Lane. My late father Frank was the President of Platt Bridge labour club at one time and my late husband was treasurer in the 90s when George Davies was the secretary. We moved to Tenerife in 1999.
