Hey.... women not wearing jeans or pants, these are proper ladys, bring back the 60s. A great time.

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 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.

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.
