Brilliant Vickey ! That was the reason for me starting this thread and posting those pictures .I thought if just one person finds an old relative on a picture, thats been lying around for donkeys years , then its worth it . Looks like you are that one person !

Can you give any other names not already mentioned ? My connection is with Park Road and the Harts who lived at No 6 for about 50 years next door to the Haslems . My brother and sister are on the front row of the image, dressed as a vicar and bridesmaid .

P.S. Looks like your gran is also on the first picture , standing top left towards the back , you can make out the same hat .

Hi Vickytivey,I thought you must have a connection with the owners of the bakery shop when i saw your name,our family used the shop regularly and i wondered if you knew how long the business had been there,my dads family lived on Chatsworth Ave and that is where i was born and the shop was there as far back as i can remember.

Hi there, my name is Ian Tivey,on the picture is my mother Beryle Eyre, she lived at 17 Elm Avenue, the big farmhouse at the end of the row with the bay window,her brother was Ken and their mother and father was Frank and Florence. Next door was my aunt and uncle, florences brother and sister in law,charlie and hilda Orridge.

Hope this shines some light on who they where.

Regards

Ian

Spot on Ian as always.

How am I keeping? Well I am still alive, much to the disappointment of some. 67 now Ian and getting a bit creaky, still working with my son but more of a part time advisor now. He runs the show I just take a cut of the profits.

Still with Chris but she is now retired

Can't believe we clicked on your first post, that's some coincidence.

And how are you keeping yourself, still in touch with any of the old crowd?

Not quite so old as the previous but another street party . Queens Jubilee party from the first week in July 1977 .

We lived on Norman Road but the party was on Standhill Road. Thorneywood .

There was some sort of street party competition arranged by Radio Nottingham and Standhill Road got the top prize , (as far as I remember ).

Whatever the prize was , you can see Freddy Parrot-Face Davies presenting a cake and the radio presenter doing a live commentary . Somewhere I have a cassette of the radio broadcast at the time .

Apart from Parrot-face don't know any other names .

In the two photos where you can see the radio presenter, it looks very much like Dennis McCarthy who, at that time, was at the peak of his local radio superstardom.

Yes that name rings a bell .
