Fancy Dress

Fancy Dress

Once again at Carlin How,part of the Gala or Carnival Day in the 1960s, we have other images of the event on site; but don’t be shy name yourself if you are there. Bill Kitching tells us: ”Man with hand raised could be Jim Husband of Carlin How.” Derick Pearson tells us: ” Lady in the white is Mrs Cook Mother of Gordon, Bill and Brian. The parade was at the bottom of Queen Street/ Grosvenor Terrace. Hudsons shop in the background belonged to the Hudson brothers; Tom and  Alf. One a coalman and the other had the shop at Skinningrove (Hutton Street) I think after this one in Carlin How. Doris ran the shop side. The back door far left was into the yard of the Dairy, owned at that time by Blind Mr Jacobs who used to have a 3 wheel Motor Trike. At the other side of that building on the main road was Swinerton’s Chemist in the 1950s to 60s. The procession was on its way to the Tennis Courts and Football field. I believe it was Gala day or Carnival Day about 1962.  Lanc Lightfoot was also dressed as Ghandi with a goat and of course the 3 three gents as Negro’s in the photo.”

Carlin How Square

When first posted on the Archive the question was: “Wonder what has brought all these people out int the square?” Finley Butler advised: “It says in a book of my grandmothers called ‘Carlin How – Times Past ‘ that this image is of ”Volunteers leaving for Boer war, 1900”. Derick Pearson advised it was part of a disc compilation of images he produced in 1983 for a Village Arts initiative led by Doff Pollard in the Jubilee Hall. Further researches aided by Carlin How Community Centre has allowed an improved image to be presented.

Carlin How Bridge

Carlin How Bridge

Yes the railway bridge as it used to be at Carlin How, do you remember driving under it? I do and if you met a bus coming the other way there was not a lot of room.

Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant

Not yet completed Mount Pleasant at Carlin How, but Alan Pearson tells us: ”Mount Pleasant is not on the 1894 Ordnance Survey map, but in the 1911 census no 15 Mount Pleasant is occupied by my great-grandfather Chapman Pearson. There were 13 people living there on census night – and they had a shop there as well!!”
