Out of the shoebox photos .


Recommended Posts

Hi colin,i am still working, but not srangling spanners anymore. Ihave just turned 62 so still a spring chicken,eh.still keep in touch with brian handley and tony peters(hoare). just heard that keith nichols (nick-nick)the one who lost his leg, has died suddenly in bovingdon, bit of a shock. dont get up to the old comrades at drill hall as much as i would like to,it is held on a wed night in the o/rs club room now. no barman, grahan retired and left, so have to drink cans, not the same as a good pint of mansfield.

Hope you keep in touch on this means mate,glad you and chris are ok,my missus still keeps me on my toes,

T.T.F.N

Ian

These look like a formidable bunch of Carlton grannies out on a trip .

The only ones I can identify are Mary Ann Hart seated in the centre in the flowery dress and Ethel Wright (nee Hart) on the far left with flowery scarf and the lady next to her is Mrs Haslem .

Certainly a Park Road , Carlton connection and looks like early 1950s.

A result !

After posting a link to the above "grannies" photo on a Notts family history board I was contacted by the Great Grand-daughter of one of the ladies above . This also dates the picture to 1949 or before .

"Lady sitting 3rd from left at the front, seated , with her handbag on her lap is Edith Daykin (nee Clarke) who died in 1949.

She lived at Kirks Buildings in Carlton .

Her friend Mrs Tinkler is next to her (2nd from left at front)."

A crowd of people at Land's End in 1950.



The Nottstalgia link is that they are all from Nottingham. It's an old family photo and includes my mother's parents (who lived at Grimston Road, Radford) and two aunts who lived at Garden Street, Radford. So it could be an organised trip from the Radford/Lenton area, or maybe it's just a Skills/Barton package holiday with people from all parts of Nottingham.



Out of 34 people, I only know 4 of them, so the others may be related to you. They are definitely all from Nottingham.

Karlton, thats good, though as I said I didn't know the Daykins, they were identified by someone that emailed me .

See you worked at Colwick. Did you know any of the Harts that worked at Colwick or even my uncle Eric Wilson who I believe worked there , could have been a union man ?

I don't recall the name Hart. I believe the union man was a chap by the name of stan fl--------s, such a long time ago, I don't know wether i'm aloud to give out his name wthout permission. I do recall an Eric Wilson i don't know wether its the same one, could his wife be Ada? if not, sorry to dissapoint, davidw.
