Is the Billy Gaskell you mention the son of Elizabeth and William Gaskell? Did he have a brother, John? John Gaskell was my great grandad and his family were from Dean St. Would love to share some info!

I have a similar photo taken from a different angle. My grandmother, Winifred Hurst, great Grandmother, Jane Farrell and Auntie Rita Hurst are on my version but they’re missing from this one. They lived at 3 Dean Street.
