Guisborough Hospital.

Official Do.

Lots of official chains in view and Norman is on the far back left but who else is there and what was the do? Peter Appleton has advised: “The gentleman third from the right looks to me like it might be a young Bob Brunger. He was, for part of his life, chairman of Skelton & Brotton Urban District Council. If my identification is correct then this gathering looks like a gathering of dignitaries from the various local authorities and the date must be before 1974, when the U.D.C.s were abolished. It is possible that Bob might be able to supply additional names.” The Archive will ensure Bob Brunger has sight of hopefully improved image and assist in other identification; the Archive also believes that the lady to the right of Bob Brunger is Audrey Collins.

That’s A Big One Norman!

The cigar is a big one and there must have been a good joke made as the group are all laughing. Once again we know Norman and Mayoress Hilda Barwick featured again in the Council Chamber at Eston Town Hall; but can you name any of the others in the photograph? Better still were you there?

Admiring The Chain.

We now know this to have been in the Council Chamber in Eston Town Hall, as Ray Tough advised: “Yes it was the council chamber at Eston Town Hall.” But the Archive was also hoping for confirmation about the group of children and Norman are admiring the official chain of office. The coat of arms in the background: “United We Endeavour” then Langbaurgh and now Redcar and Cleveland coat of Arms are a feature in the Council Chamber.

Are you in this photo?
