The two photo's above were taken in the yard behind the Co-Op shop at the top of Ferry Lane (this stood where the grass verge is today) around 1950. The two on the bicycle are myself and my older brother Malcolm. The four sitting around the table I'm not too sure about but looks like myself, my brother and Stanley Deighton and Barbara McDuff.
 
 
The lady in this photo is Aileen Teasedale who worked at the Co-Op and went round to people's homes taking orders for delivery later in the week. She lived on Lee Moor, married a man called Alf Egglestone' moved into the "new prefabs" and later moved on to live on Lime Pit Lane
