I'm sure Marjory lived on Manchester Road, Ince when this was taken.She has a sister called Joyce.I think it's late 1950's though.

Thanks Kieran,
My maiden name was Hurst, and Marjory will remember me as Stella's daughter who lived at the shop across from her on Manchester Road. She was always very glam and always looked lovely when she went out.Her mother, Marion,(your Great Grandma) was a lovely gentle lady as well.
