Hey.... women not wearing jeans or pants, these are proper ladys, bring back the 60s. A great time.
The guys are not wearing trainers aswell, real men clean and tidy. Lovely photo.
..thanks for your lovely comments..does anyone know more about these old friends from Wigan, where they might be living today?
People seeme to take pride in how they dressed in those days, not track suits, T shirts and trainers like today. scruffy generation these days.
I'm with you John, girls looking like girls, quite lovely.
does anybody know any of my old friends on the photo??
Sorry no, but I wish I had met your lady friends.
I think this photo was taken outside Westwood Independent Methodist Chapel,this would be on James St.I went to the youth club myself,but it was a few years after 1964.A man named David Houghton ran it then.
Anita, Fred Hough was in my class at Spring View, he is on some school photos, but not seen him since we left school
was this a wedding as the girls are wearing flowers?
anita is that girl june shufflebottom still a friend of yours
I'm sorry, but I haven't seen her since...that's why I posted these photos, hoping someone could tell me where my old friends might be, where I could get in touch with them...
anita she is the girl(june s)who lived near us in worsley mesnes/poolstock family moved to ashton circa 1965 photo does,nt do her justice !
yes, she was very pretty! would love to get in touch again but seems impossible to trace her down...
i worked with Kathleen Rigby at H.J.Heinz (kitt Green) in the late 60's. She has a brother (laurence). think her name is Parkinson now. and is the girl sat next to her (on boy's lap) Christine Jarvis of James Street? she has a brother John.
hello Anita, Kathleen Rigby lived in Platt Bridge (nr. Wigan) last I heard. Her married name was Parkinson. I used to see her occasionally when she worked at Edwards bread stall in Wigan Market Hall. hope you manage to contact your friends from your youth.
