Thankyou for these pics, Christine.I remember Aunty Alice and Uncle George from around this time.I am in touch with my "babies class" (as we used to say) teacher from Ince Central School, and she remembers Uncle George; she lived in Westwood Terrace and the Parkinsons lived nearby. She was Miss Ashurt when she taught me, but got married shortly after and became Mrs. Johnson. After Ince Central, she taught at Britannia Bridge.Aunty Alice looks very much like her sisters in this photo.I have printed them off and am so pleased to have them.....Thankyou!
