In the photos of the ladies in top hats and bow ties, JE45 correctly identified my nan Vera Price of Victoria Terrace next to the drummer boy. Amazing to see these photos as we have not got them in the family. Nan passed away 2011 so never got chance to show her but great to have.

je45- Thanks for note confirming that I was right about your house.
Where is Merle now? I know she lived in Switzerland and Yorks. Am I right in thinking that she retired in Yorks?

Milkman and Morgan are both correct.We did live in 26 Victoria and it is the second house in on the photos (the only one with a painted front).The photographer must have been standing in the gap which is between no27 and no28

Hi Bryan
Correct regarding Bill Millard, no our paths never crossed but I did know you plus a lot of your friends whom I knew well, likes of David Nevins, Charlie Mac, John Fear plus many more.

Have a Good Day morgan
Bryan Rendell Posted - 30/04/2011 : 20:25:09
Evening Morgan,

The Millards at No.1 - Was that Billy Millard and his son Brian. If it was I was very friendly with them. Brian was my age and I saw him last at Ried Hall about 4 years ago.

Billy was my drinking pal and we used to play cards together. What a card Player?

Bryan

PS. We must have cocme across each other in our youth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Tom
The milkboy got is numbers wrong Merle lived in 26 Vic living in No 1 Millards 2 Phillips 3 Waters 4 Dowswell
milkman Posted - 30/04/2011 : 13:46:12
I am sure photo was taken in Vic. I think the second house along is Merle Watton's but last correspodent will readily corroborate (or not).
Not a milk boy for nothing!
je45 Posted - 28/04/2011 : 17:07:16
Regarding 2nd group photo some more names are Merle Watton and Irene Watton (my sister and mother) Lil Evans,Myra Tuck, Mrs Bendle and Vera Price. Bill Mattick is standing on doorstep of 27 Victoria Tce
je45 Posted - 28/04/2011 : 16:58:59
Very good photo.Val Brain is holding doll ,next to her is Gill Graham
lady in welsh costume is Mary Rutter and one of children in the front I think is Vivienne Cooper
pierre Posted - 28/04/2011 : 10:47:39

90% was from Vic a couple from Colenso
The Leader in the centre his Mrs Brain
I will add another photo taken at the same Carnival now know the correct year was 1951
I will pass on the Photo to Pierre

on both photos no9 (grayhams navigation) smoke stack is in center rear so not victoria,maybe kimberley?if you were a real detective a photo could be taken from the exact spot that the photographer stood all those years ago,i did this in a photo of james st, it was a queer feeling looking through the lens from the same spot and seeing the spot where those people were, and all have passed away............odd feeling!
and 45 years earlier i was the photographer!

Sorry Morgan but I presumed that as Roger Giles was on the photograph it must have been York Terrace. His house was in front of mine, No. 49 Kimberley Tce.

Now names ring a bell with me - Merle Wharton and Dorothy Dowswell.

Thanks again.

Bryan.
