Music Hall Act Or What?

The Archive has been requested to undertake some research of an images for the Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum; it is displayed above! The image is part of the extensive collection of photographs which the Mining Museum holds, but the Museum is unsure of the relevance or reason for inclusion in their collection. It is believed to be two brothers who were part of a music hall act popular on Northern music hall stages; but the Archive would welcome any information to support or disprove this theory. Please help us!!!

Kirkdale’s most famous monument is the ANGLO-SAXON SUNDIAL situated just above the main doorway under cover of the 18th century porch; still much visited today the church is a peaceful haven, well worth visiting .

Miss She

Miss She

Butlin’s Filey in the 1970’s I think; did you go, do you remember all the competitions there used to be? The Miss She was a fiercely fought one and on the left of the photo is Eileen Hyde sadly coming second. I can describe her outfit because I crocheted it, dress coat and hat, peach was the main colour with stripes of white at regular intervals. I as very proud of making that outfit, sadly I no longer have it and it wouldn’t fit if I had.

Can You Help to name the Young Ladies

Cousins in England-1We have had a request for assistance in naming people in the image, Can anybody assist?

Elaine Meadows (nee Tyerman) tells us: “As you look at the picture taken at Runswick Bay in the 1950’s the first 2 children from the left hand side are unknown, (possible from Hinderwell or Runswick Bay); then my cousins Janet and Christine (Chris) Pearson as they were then aged 5 – 6 years. They lived Browns Terrace at Hinderwell, and Chris still lives at Hinderwell. 2 of 4 children of Cyril and Hilda Pearson (nee Tyerman)….their other two siblings are not on picture. We have asked all the family if they know the other 2 girls….and nobody knows them…they are not family members. The picture was sent from Canada saying on the back your Cousins from Hinderwell… as I said the two on the right are…..the other two are definately not Canadians.”

If you can assist please send via the comments facility and we will pass on to Elaine. Many thanks.

Time changes us all and it is sometimes difficult to remember names. We have all been in this situation, asking a friend if they can name a face and then been relieved that it was who ever we thought it was. At the reunion this happened many times and always with a happy out come.
