Is that Church Street, looking towards Gilbert Street (Peter Street off to the right)?

Comments by Bill Eatock, 29th January 2009  
Yes, the the parish church would be to the right of the picture.

When I took the picture in the 60s I never realised at the time that the little girl the third from the left would end up as my wife! We've now been married for 32 years.

Yes she has a twinkle in her young eyes.
Bill, you must have been very young aswell when you took this picture, good on you, and thanks for preserving such memories.

Just to inform -- the owner of the invalid vehicle in the background was Donald Atherton. I remember him getting his first one with three wheels and hand operated chain drive with a waterproof cover over his legs. Memories eh ?

Ann was your mum Mary? If so she worked with my mum at Roberts at Hindley green turners factory, we visited when she lived on Liverpool Road my mum was Sally Lee. Xx

Yes my mum was Mary and she worked at Turners. We must have gone to Sunday school together. I think I walked every year until I was about 10 or 11!
