Hi Bobby---Contacted Ray Meirs and all is good for him and his family.It was neat that you were concerned and it was neat that I had to ring him to make sure he was ok as I haven't spoke to Ray since last february mainly because we've moved away 800km to a beautiful area in NZ{business wise] called the Wairarapa---Cheers Billy

Yes, like Sheila, also knew Jean McKinnon. Jean was one of the older girls in the street, her friends were, Leslie Redding, Diane Murdock, Ann Greene, Nancy Edge, Maureen ? Valerie Ward, Ann Potts, all nice girls!
McKinnons were a lovely family, Jean had an older brother, Keith, seemed to be in the army for years..always in uniform!
Older children in street would take care of the younger ones, Jean was especially kind to all the children, a lovely girl, took us everywhere, never away from the beach, Arrow park, New Brighton baths, happy days, lovely memories :)

Thanks for photos Bob :)

They are the Cawley Twins (Alan and Arthur) from Brook Road, Alan sadly :( passed away in 2015.
The picture would have been taken about 1949/50

The two girls with the bows in their hair, the one on the left certainly looks like my wife Margaret at St Monica's. I said immediately to her that I thought there was a photo of her on here, and she immediately pointed to the same girl. We have compared it to childhood photo of herself and it certainly looks like her, and she always had a bow in her hair.

Hi Glenys, sorry, don't know, haven't seen Leslie for years.
Mr Redding continued running the shop though, think they stayed until he was quite elderly, he was a lovely man, always jolly, always helpful with the customers.
The Redding's went to Cornwall every year for summer holiday's, half the family would go by train, other half by car, could never understand why at the time, must have been more practical, as it would have been a bit of a job, squeezing family and luggage into that little van of theirs :)
The school photos are a good idea, love looking at them :wink:

Glenys the name Doris Shelton, certainly rings a bell, but can't put a face to the name..have a feeling she may have lived top of Scott St, more towards Peel road. I know that Leslie had a friend called Hazel, lived in Croxteth Avenue.. not sure if they attended same school though..
Glenys, did you live close to Leslie?

Glenys, you will probably remember prefabs in park, behind your house, had a school friend who lived there, I would sometimes play around that area, school friends name was Veronica Macgrory, other children from the park prefabs, Edna Savage, Maureen Galagher Joice Soley, can't remember rest of names, but they were all close neighbours from prefabs, lovely tight little community, and the park, a great place to play :D

Still trying to remember a Doris Shelton :roll: :)
