I received an email yesterday from my half cousin Anne. Unfortunately she cannot lay claim to any of the individuals in your Photo's Sarah. She does say however that Moh does have a resemblance to her mother Peggy when she was the same age, which is what tripped me up in the first place with that particular group.

Definitely someone different, I cannot imagine Margaret having either her mother or Abies living with them - Abies mum would be in Scotland anyway. How long ago are you taking about?

Hi,
It could be about 30 years since I went,she used to travel alot as my Mother always got poscards and maybe they lived in the Canaries for a bit. She had Blond hair (Maybe a wig?),glasses and was always made up nice.
I think they owned a big building on Skipton Road at some point,across the road from Wellhouse round junction.

Sounds like Margaret - maybe they travelled with the RAF. As I lost touch with her I cannot help.

The big building on Skipton Road is the old gasworks Sarah. From the early 1960's until the firm closed in the 1980's it was where Robert Lambert (Joiners & Builders) were based. The firm moved there after the original wooden built workshop burnt down.
This original workshop was adjacent to the railway goods yard and the entrance gates were approximately where the junction is now with Skipton Road and Fernlea Avenue. Just in front of Foresters Buildings. You have to remember that Skipton Road at that time ran straight down from the end of Church street. The through route from Fernlea was not there, that was the railway goods yard. The town coal yard was in the area behind where the bus stops are now on Station Road and just round the corner.
Margaret did used to work in the office at the Skipton Road works, certainly in the 70's as she costed all the materials for the building work I had done at my first house. Uncle Bob supplied the materials at a discount, my dad supplied the building expertise and I did the labouring and mucked in where I could. We took out the shop front and converted it back to a living room in our first house on York Street.
I would agree with Moh that you seem to be describing Margaret, certainly as I remember her anyway.

Talking of Bob, I remember he used to get broken biscuits or mis=shapes - they were lovely - always had more cream in than the others.

His funeral was on the 18th of March at Ghyll church,then pie and peas at the cricket club. I am sorry you did not know Ian,as I thought you would be there. I don't think his son Allan really knew how to get in touch with everybody.
