A wonderful picture of the commemorative stone as Smallthorne Community Hall was being built. The photo is courtesy of Joan Leigh and much appreciated.
Alan Eardley has kindly sent us the following information regarding the photograph.
“In the photograph of the laying of the foundation stone for the Smallthorne Community Hall the young boy to the right is me. My father Alderman Wilf Eardley has his hand on the gavel and behind me is Annie Eardley, my mother. To Wilf’s right is Councillor Harry Brown and behind him is Ted Leonard. The name of the lady who also has her hand on the gavel escapes me, but she was the oldest member of the Smallthorne Community Association. I was involved as the youngest member (aged 11).”
If you recognise anyone else pictured then please let us know.
