In reply to a previous comment by Danielle I believe your nan, Nora Mitchinson, is in this photo of the Wellfield Hotel bar staff taken in the early 1960's. She's third in from the left. Left to right, Josie (my aunt), Mrs Hatton, Nora, Molly and Cliff Makin, Robert Hastings, my parents Jack and Phyllis Bowen, Mrs Mason and at the front Jimmy Horsfall.

My mum said she remembers your mum and Dad and you an Julie, she was next to the youngest, the blonde girl, she thinks you might remember Jaqueline better though, the oldest who lived with my great grandma at the time

I also lived on Welfield rd with my sister Kathleen, my Mum and dad were Mary and Alan O`leary, Nora Mitchinson is my Aunty as was Emily. Kathleen is my cousin not seen her for years, I now live on the isle of Wight. Graham, Barry, Philip and Julie were some of my best friends. I am up north for Christmas and reminiscing with my sister Joy. Hope you are all doing ok
