Friend of the blog, community activist and Clayhanger Kid himself, Brian Stringer has sent the above image of the members of Clayhanger Working Men’s Club around 1953, and is trying to identify as many people in the picture as he can.
I’ve used this photo in one of my books and know quite a few of the people on it. I wonder if any of your bloggers can come up with some missing names. It’s a picture of members of Clayhanger Working Mens Club circa 1953.
I think most of the ones on the left used to live on the Pelsall Rd opposite the old Jolly Collier.
The ones I recognise are. Walter Birch,Jack Poxon, Mr Talbot, Bert Platt, Ronnie Willetts, Peter Richards, Peggy and Tom Platt, Mr Clews, Liz Wright, ‘Lofty’ Day, Pat, Connie, and Sid Meacham, (Seated), May Lewis? Mrs Jeffries, Mrs Howes?, Edie Talbot, and Billie Jeffries.
I’d love to know the rest.
There are many, many brownie points on offer if you can solve this one! Comment here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks!
It’s always a pleasure to help Brian if we can, so please do get your thinking caps on.
Cheers to Brian for a great enquiry,
