My mother Phyllis Brown, at the time this photo was taken, is seated at the bottom right hand corner of this photo. I know it was a works outing to Blackpool and I know that she worked for a short time in the accounts department of a large clothing manufacturer. Unfortunately she's no longer around to ask and it may be that it was during the time she used to cycle to work from Wigan to Walkden, I simply don't know if it's a Wigan or Manchester occasion. The year is around 1936/37.

Clothing Factory, Walkden. Sounds like Burtons to me! E.T.

Thank you Eric, that rings a bell, it probably was Burtons.
