Waiting at the Ritz cinema 1939 approx
Photo: Keith

I believe this photo was taken outside the Ritz Cinema in approximately 1939. On the left is my mother standing with her friend who I believe is Betty Morris. I'm assuming their dates have arrived (hence the photo) and I'm jumping to assumptions here but that should have been my father, who had signed a 10 year contract with Wigan RL and possibly the other date was probably his pal, another Welshman, Ted Ward who also signed from the same club Llanelli. Apologies for the poor quality of the photo but I've done my best to try and get rid of two very bad creases across the photo which unfortunately went straight through both faces.
