"The Daily Herald"

Mrs. Rebecca Tindall won first prize in this outfit at a Labour Party Rally (we think) in about 1926.  The Daily Herald was a Labour paper.  Her husband, Mr. Charles Laurence Tindall, founded the Labour Party in Loftus.

Thanks to Mrs. L. Johnson for the photo and information.

At Kilton Castle, 2

This photograph was taken by T. C. Booth, Loftus, who was the Pastor at the Congregational Church.  I don’t know whether this group are on the same outing as the previous one, or if this was taken at a different time. Kilton was a popular venue for church or chapel outings, often a picnic with activities; trips from Carlin How or Loftus were a regular event (weather permitting).

At Kilton Castle, 1

With the date on the bottom corner of this photograph being 1915, and having been produced by T. C. Booth the assumption has been that it is a a trip or picnic at Kilton. It shows members of Loftus Congregational Church on an outing to Kilton Castle.
