Apologies if this appears twice. I posted it 24 hrs. ago but has not appeared, so re-trying. My Uncle Jimmy lived in Taylors Lane during my childhood, before moving to Ince. Christine, nee Parkinson, hope you see this, and so glad you enjoyed seeing Auntie Sally on the wedding pic (under "").I left further comments on it. Irene.

None at all, Eric. This photo was obviously given to my Mam and Dad during the war...I was only born in 1952 and just remember it being in our family photos all my life. He reminds me so much of his brother Bob, my Dad. I am hoping some of my cousins will see it. Thanks for your comment.

Hello to all my cousins and how lovely to hear from you. My friend from London was here when I posted this photo of Uncle Jimmy and was amazed by how I look like him. I was hoping at least one of you would see the family photos and pass the word around. Anyone got any more?
