Members of Ushaw Moor Women’s Institute, looks like their Christmas party (1960’s). Elsie Clegg in the middle cutting the cake and a very young Lilly Sowerby (nee Grayson) back row first left. Lots of local faces to bring back memories.

  • Paul Clough Wonderful photo. Lots of faces to recognise.
  • Michael Dickinson My grandma Emily Dickinson is probably on here somewhere. She used to attend chapel regularly and was buried from there when she died.

Many people may have seen this photograph in a certain publication, this is an original image, I can put names to three of the miners. Third from the left my uncle Oliver Anderson next to him his brother Fred Anderson, sixth miner is my dad Alan Brown, not sure who the others are (possibly 1950’s)

Anderson’s Grocery shop around 1935 in Station Road. My mother Margaret and her sister Nancy standing at the entrance. The shop was situated next door to Arthur Lough’s shoe shop. It was later passed on to my Aunt Rosie Smith and then to Mabel Luke and her husband Norman Lee. Mabel’s mother and father owned Luke’s fish and chip shop below the grocery shop.

  • Paul Clough Another great shot. Not seen this one before
  • Margaret Thompson I do not think there is another photo of this shop around this time, it has only ever been mentioned as a memory by Peter Howarth before.
  • Audrey Tidbury Cooper Staniland Lovely photo!. I guess my mother (nee Gladys Jolly} would have shopped there. She lived in Station House with her parents and i was born in 1935.
