Laying The Foundations

A further image of the foundation stone laying of the West End Chapel. Another T C Booth postcard of the ill-fated chapel, which in 1927 had to be demolished following the bank top slippage. It was then rebuilt on Deepdale Road.

Official Opening

Official Opening

The official opening of the ill-fated West End Chapel of Loftus. Well attended, gentlemen not only suited and booted; even top hats can be seen amidst the bowlers and straw boaters. Whilst the ladies are in floral dresses and equally well hatted! The banding in the brickwork of the chapel is of a similar style t0 that of the Congregational church at the end of Westfield Terrace.

Judging must have been difficult as these three ladies posed for Miss Loftus. The winner was Doreen Magor on the left with Eileen Money next to her and Betty Shaw on the right.

East Loftus Children at Play

Again on the playing field at East Loftus, believed to be in the 1930s. Eric Trembath tells us: ”The two lads sat on the right of the see-saw the first is ?? Morrison the second right is my dad Maurice Trembath.”
