I love the dark, double breasted suit the smaller boy is wearing, very smart...wonder what the lads in front of the pub were discussing !

Hello Tommy. Good to hear from you! Helen, I think the lads are probably discussing what time the pub will open.

I wonder if that little lad's suit was made from material left over from his dad's. I remember most men had their suits made specially , I don't think there were many ready mades in days gone by.

Just before the bridge, over the River Douglas, then towards the Horseshoe Pub..

I loved Walking Day at St George’s.

From all the stories that accumulated that I personally heard, it would be an obvious conclusion that the parishioners’ of St George’s, and the parishioners of the local R.C. Community blended together admirable.
