I think the girl standing on her own on the left is my mother Violet Campbell who was born in 1909.I've compared this photo with an old family photo and a few people have said it looks like her. She lived on James Street but she once told me she had to help an old, very stern aunt who lived on Park Grove.Wish she was still here to confirm it.

What a great photo. The house to the left with the double bay belongs to my parents. My late father moved there with my grandparents in 1935 and mum still lives there. Sadly dad passed away over 2 years ago now.

I think this photo is photoshopped. The houses further down the street have skylighted windows in the roof, something i think wasnt around in them days. Plus the children look like the children that a stood on the town centre photo.

Love this picture. We lived at number 51 Park Grove from 1959 to 1968 when my parents sold up and relocated to Scarborough. I attended Holy Rood during this period, I remember Miss Young (headmistress!!)
I had my first holy communion in 1964 and have a lovely photo of this event with all pupils, teaching staff, priests/nun's etc on it......I would like to share this picture on your site can anyone advise me of how to go about it? I can remember some of the names of my classmates on the photo.....could you be on it !?!
