Also in the photo is Freddie Unsworth who used to have the photograghic shop next to Baxters store in the sixties, on parliment street.He used to live at Alma Farm with his family, Janet ,Ruth , Judith and Donald. Donald and I went to school together but sadly Donald took his own life in the early eighties.
