Arthur Lawton was my uncle, he lived in West St (up Belle Green Lane) when this photo was taken. I think he was born in St Williams Club, same as my father.
I remember your Dad bill when he was Caretaker, he used to let us milk monitors come into his boiler room for a warm on winter mornings and share out his winter nips or open a tin of Tacs.. only titchy but red hot. A great chap, god bless him
Frank Finney (back row, tallest) is my Great Uncle and lives out in New Zealand in Lower Hutt. he came over to visit us about five years ago. My morther Winifred Cockrell (nee France, formerly of Belle Green Lane H. Ince still speaks to him on the phone now and again.
Most of these people came to our house, Father Howarth was good friends with my dad as was most of them. Vince Hesketh was my dads best friend.
