Two local people after their wedding in the 1948, taken outside Loftus Police Station.

This wedding, between Dave Smith of Coronation Street, Carlin How and Maisie Rowland of West Road, Loftus took place on 7 August 1948. The ceremony was held in the Congregational Church and, as there was no frontage to the church, the photographs were taken, as Ray Brown tells us, outside Loftus police station. The bride’s guardians , Tom and Nellie Steyart, were close friends of Frank Watson the Police Inspector in charge at Loftus.
