I think it's lovely Daniel, for you to have these treasured photo's in your family album. I wish I had some of my grt grandparent's.

Yes, It’s nice to see old photos like these of the past although a lot of times sadly they don’t come with names and dates but it’s still good to see them.

My paternal Grandmother was a Farnworth. She lived in Ince Green Lane. Don't know if she was any relation though.

John, don’t think they where related to these Farnworths on Ince green lane but when I did my family history on the Catterall side there where another family of farnworths that I think lived in that area.

John & MrsM Thanks for the posts, but no, they never lived in Browning ave. I think the family came from Bolton originally.
