A team line up and a pig roast: What do you know?

Brian Clenton contacted me again just before Christmas and asked if I could round these two photos again, as he’s still looking for names and information about the people in them – and they’re wonderful images, so it’s a pleasure.

Brian is of course a member of the noted local family of butchers who for a long time had a shop on Lindon Road near Anchor Bridge that many older local readers will recall – if you can’t this post here will jog your memory.

These two images were part of a larger set Brian sent in earlier here which are well worth a look.

Always happy to help readers with this sort of thing, so if you can help, please do… comment on this post, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.

    Can’t help with the photos, but I can remember going to the Clenton butchers shop. I also remember Dave Clenton’s Custom Kawasaki shop in Hendesford.

    Sorry can’t help with the photo either,
    but do remember the Clenton family, in fact I delivered newspapers to the
    shop down the Anchor for Tomlinsons, around 1958/60.
    Also played football for the junior school up till 1956 when I went to the grammar school in Litchfield and became a ‘grammar grub’.
    I now live in Helsinki,Finland

    With reference to the Clayhanger pig roast photograph.
    My sister and I are two of the children and my Auntie Dot is an adult with a tray.
    My sister, then Josephine Cooper, is the second person in from the back row from the left. I am the little girl with blonde hair standing in front of her. ( She has her hands on my shoulder). My name then was Jill Cooper.
    My Auntie, Dorothy Smith, is the fourth lady in from the right. She is holding a tray, has an apron on and is standing next to a little girl. Hope this helps.

    Me again. I think the year for the hog roast at Clayhanger is more likely to be 1961.
