Great photo. No doubt an indelible image of an unforgettable age.
lol wittle lived on my estate . he died a few years ago.
is that john bullough that was a milk man lives on atherton rd if it is i will show his son barry this pic
Apart from remembering Fred Hardman, the pic was taken before my time. I don't know any of the lads there.
I used to go to school with Barry Bullough. I believe he's a now a pub landlord.
barry no longer a landlord hes back on the water board , he use to run the vic in hindley green , a good mate of mine and a good bloke
Pass on my regards lez tell him Wayne Prescott's been asking about him.
Fred Hardman, the teacher, headmaster, died a couple of years ago, he was 91. I often used to see him walking along Atherton Road in Hindley Green. Often, while teaching the class, he was smoking (terrible isn't it :D) Undeniably, he was a very educated chap. Some folks thought he had favourites, I didn't, but I think he had a preference for established families in the area. I could never get my head round his version of un-equal division.
John Ryding is on the front row - second in (listed incorrectly as Tom Riding).
Great bunch!I am on front row.
Tom Riding went on to be headmaster at a school in ince if I am not mistaken
