North Skelton Post Office – 1920s

 

North Skelton Post Office in the 1920s, pictured we have: “The young girl with the flowers is my dad’s sister Sally Kitching and the other young girl is his eldest sister Edie. The post office was run by my dad’s great uncle Bill Young and his wife Bessie who are the two figures on the far right here. The young woman second from the left is dad’s aunt Annie (Smith), next to her is his Aunt Nellie and then Arch Aubrey who was the husband of Annie Smith (they married in 1924). I don’t know what the occasion was. We think the Post Office was at 10 Wharton Street.” The Archive can confirm that William (Billy) Young was Sub-postmaster with his wife Bessie at 10 Wharton Street; they still lived there in 1939. The Archive would again welcome information as regards the possible occasion, especially as all present were obviously celebrating some event.
