Sunday School Outing?

Sunday School Outing?

This could possibly be a view of a Sunday School or church outing in Carlin How Square, based upon the style of dress and the numbers of young people in the image. We are told by Derick Pearson: ”This was the Carlin How Wagonette trip in 1909. Some wagons, rulleys or carts as they were called were set up with seats but the others had benches taken from the pub and the Chapel which were then roped to the carts for safety. This would have a big event in those days.”

Are There Fairies At The Bottom Of your Garden

These fairies are in the grounds of the Carlin How Club hall I think and one of the fairies is ? Tremain. Were you there or can you name any of the fairies and what was the occassion? Sheila Cotterill advises: “My maiden name is Hibbert (nee Glasper) my grandmother was Mary Ann Pearson of Cariin How. I have a photograph of one of the fairies but no name; it is the fairy in the middle of your fairy group photograph. I would like contact with any Pearson family member; doing my family research.”
