In Issue 264 (out from 1 July) we published John ‘Jackie’ Hogg’s photo, from 1935, of the Christy  brothers in good voice during a children’s sing-song in the back-greens of Broughton Road. 

Here we show it again for those who want a closer look. 

Hogg sent us two other images which we now publish for the first time. They both date from 1940 and detail ‘Spitfire’ concerts held to raise money for the war effort.

If you spot yourself in these photographs, or anyone else you know, or have other memories or images to share from way back when, we’d love to hear from you.
