Photo Mystery – Can You Help?

Mark Ashworth has sent us this fabulous photograph, taken in St Peter’s Church Hall in the late 1950s or early 1960s, and we’d love to find out as much as we can about it!

We wondered if it might be a gathering of the Church Youth Club, as there’s a box of 45s on the table on the left hand side, but if anyone can help with any information, we’d be very grateful.

You can comment on this post, or email us at beatlesatstpeters@gmail.com

But even if we can’t find out anything, we still love this new glimpse into the history of St Peter’s Church Hall!  Thanks for allowing us to share this, Mark.

 

Woolton in the 1950s – Part 2

We have to confess that some of our most favourite photos from James Davis’ wonderful collection that shows Woolton in the 1950s are in this batch!  One of them contains James’ shadow, which we think is really beautiful.

The procession featured in this collection took place in the winter (see the lack of leaves on the trees).  We thought it might be for Remembrance Sunday, but we can’t see if the people watching are wearing poppies.

See if you can spot the “beatle” (but remember that we can’t always spell things correctly … )

 

 

Thank you James! Your shadow will always touch our lives.

Thanks again to Rod Davis for allowing us to share these wonderful photos with you!

Woolton in the 1950s

We are indebted to Rod Davis of The Quarrymen for allowing us to share these photos with you.  They are all taken by Rod’s dad, James Davis, in the 1950s and early 1960s and give us a glimpse into life in Woolton village at that time.

All the photos have been used with Rod’s kind permission.
