Jack, the entertainment couldn't have been to good. They don't look happy. Especially the woman second left front row with the head scarf L.O.L.
What year would this have been? Is it in The Parochial Hall down by the side of the church? I didn't attend St. William's school but lived next door to the presbytery and I went to many a jumble-sale in the schoolyard, (or the parochial hall if the weather was bad), with my Mam. My friend Christine and I also attended Miss Dunne's "socials" in the hall as children in the sixties, They were such lovely, homely evenings. I remember it was 1/- entrance and 3d for tea and biscuits.
I think they are all waiting for their bottle of Mackeson.
my grandma magaret quinn front 2nd from left with the
scarf on, she was'nt well, she died in 1961.
Really good picture Jack ,I remember your grandad now.
A sad comment from Ron really!
Bill, my grandfather and grandmother are also on the other photo I posted about the Walmesley Arms Hotel. I have another one of the Engineers Arms but for some reason it won't upload.
Josie is that our grandma? Which one? I think I found her. What do you think
Gradley folk who lived through through 2 wars. I agree with Bill re Rons comments.
Bill, ttd, get a life man, it was just an observation that they were at a "DO" and they looked miserable. What is sad about that???They were probably laughing their heads off two minutes later. It was the moment that the camera captured.
As Ron says the camera probably caught them at the "wrong" time but nothing takes away their dignity which shines through.
They certainly supported their C.Y.M.S.I don't think you could have got any more in the hall.
no offence taken ron, i think its The Parochial Hall,
and the stage would have been at the front of the photo
and i think i see my dad tommy cunningham top right at
the back of the hall.
Gerry the first thing I did when I saw this photo was look for grandma mawdsley im'e not sure but I would say is she on right ,behind the lady first row right? x
That's the one I picked too
My GRANDMA is on the front row second on the right, she was Ellen Sayers who worked at Ince Wagon Works in the canteen when she was 75,she also cleaned the Offices at night as well,God Bless her she was a wonderful Grandma to Eight of us.
