Wellfield Hotel, early 1960's showing the fourth game of dominoes that were a regular Sunday afternoon feature in the Vault. I can only offer two names, although I "recognise" other faces on the photograph, Frank Treen and Ray? Price (with mouth open), I think he worked for the Post Office at one time.

I think the bloke with his mouth open is Norman Price, he did work at the sorting office, he also worked on the railway, at H.J.Heinz. and was the steward at Beech hlii labour club for a while.

I think the man on the left was my grandad Mark Stubbs from Rose Avenue. He played the piano in the Wellfield and also in the British Legion on Gidlow Lane
