The man furthest to the right looks like my uncle Jack Hill,He was married to Bell and they used to be the landlord and landlady of the vic pub in Golborne.

Agnes Blackburn wife of Jimmy in the photo used to clean at the Vic for Jack and Bell so there is a good chance it is him, Janet Hilton will find out from Agnes and will post if confirmed

Jimmy Blackburn is my uncle, being my mother's only brother. I remember he took me to Harben's Social Club and I met Peter Kane the ex-boxer, probably in the mid to late sixties.
