What a fantastic photo, Ron! I has a parasol made for my wedding by Coleclough and Massey, in the row of shops shown in the distance. Agreed, Veronica, about the gossiping ladies on the left. I can almost hear them...."An' the colour of 'er nets! Black as a crow! They say 'er's walkin' out wi' yon mon from t' Co-op.......'im off t'bacon counter wi' a bawd know 'im....lives near t'pickle-works in Ince.....their Gladys wed a Yank."
