the two kids in yhe highchairs are Eric and James Barnes I have this photo taken fron another angle
just wondered photo 'c1940' - could it be 1945, a street party to celebrate end of war ? - i know as a 5yr old i went to street party in Beech Hill, i think it was where Acacia Crescent and Ashcroft Venue cross - (jelly everywhere)
Hi Alan - think my auntie Maggie (Margaret Barnes)is on the front row with my mum to her left (Patricia Howe nee:Barnes). Nan, Hilda Barnes is at the top to the left of the high chairs with James & Eric Barnes in them. Grandad, James Barnes is the man in the waistcoat & mum said Auntie Alice (Alice Litherland) was probably the lady behind the highchairs. This was in around 1945/46.
Adelle, the man in the waist coat can't be my dad as he would have still been in the services in 1940 or even 1945
Barnes twins were in same school year as my better half at All Saints. He was born 1943 so this picture could be spring/summer 1944. Just a guess!
I NO MY GRANDPARENT HARRIET TOLLEY IS IN THIS PHOTO ALSO MY MOTHER IRENE TOLLEY WHO WAS BORN IN 1935
This looks like it is in Ivy Street, I was only born in 1947 but I lived in Spring Gardens until I was 13. Mr & Mrs Yates lived in the first house, Granny Walsh next, then Mrs Marsden, Mr & Mrs McDurmot, Molly Livinstone, and I can't remember the last house. Just wondering if any of these people are in the photo ?
