Carlin How Easter Bonnet Parade 1968

In Carlin How and now believed to be the ladies of the Women’s Institute, look very fetching in their Easter Bonnets; ready for their Parade in 1968. We can identify some, but help is need with other names.

Back row: ?? , ?? , Olive Cocks, ?? , Minnie Harrison?, Mary Cook, Hilda Rawlings.

Middle row: Mrs Young, Pauline Harrison, Elaine Dyer,Mavis Hall (nee Young), Jean Forrest, Pam/Pat?, ??, ??.

Front row (adults): Edith Padget (nee Kitching), ?? , Ann Watson, ??, ??, ??.

Carole told us: “I think it is Pauline Harrison, daughter of Minnie Harrison; they lived in Dixon Street”; Sarah Keeler told us: “The third one at the back, near Hilda looks like my great gran, who was called Minnie Harrison”; whilst Malcolm Nellist advises: “The third in from the left at the back is Olive Cocks (my gran)!”.

Bill Kitching has told us: ”The woman on the far left bottom row of adults is my sister Edith Padget (nee Kitching). She was brought up in Steavenson Street and moved to Gladstone Street when she married and then on to Queen Street and finally moved to Saltburn.”

Diane Parker adds: “Third adult from the left is my Aunty Shirley Bielby (nee Carveth) and her daughter, Andrea next to her in the centre of the picture.”
