Lovely photo of late 1950's, or 1960.

Looks like it may have been taken on St.Thomas Street, next to church.

I love the way that the dresses, though slightly different in style, are made from the same fabric.

Don't they look just beautiful.

These wonderful events should still be celebrated throughout the length and breadth of our country, why did we bow to their decline or was it political correctness, as not to upset? Throughout the world cultures hold onto their traditions with staunchness and resolve . We need to take great great care , with more and more Christian churches closing , that we donít become the minority .

We have just come back from our daughters in Manchester and walking day is still going on in the villages around Saddleworth on the Friday before Whitsun followed by a huge brass band competition....lovely tradition
