Welcome to the Forum Arthur. ..
There you are in the middle with Kathleen and Mary and your Mum "having a good larf" at the back.
1952 was the year.....After Santa we all went round to your uncle Bobby's for tea and cakes. Happy days.

Where does the time go?


Glad to know that you are still "above ground"  .All the Best.  .Tink.

Hello Arthur - Welcome to the Forum.

I've posted a picture of your sister Tina and my sister Patricia outside John Murray's Shop.
Not sure if the young lad is your brother Peter.

They were happy days in the Old Street!

Hope all is well with you Arthur.

Hi Spacetinker

Finally the penny has dropped!
You were asking about my older brother Vincent. Well he is still above ground and living in Heywood Greater Manchester.
