SAY "CHEESE"....

You'll find a collection of group photos below, taken at various times, and at various locations around Moordown.

We would like to try and name everyone in the photos?..... OK, putting a name to all the faces, in photos from some 70 years ago, might be a bit of a challenge ! ... but if you can put any names to the faces, do let us know.

You can just click on any of the photos, to open up a larger version, which have had numbers added to help identification. If you do recognise anyone, simply refer to the number on the photo in question, and drop us a line....

 
Some of the photos already appear on our 'Who's that.. Where's that' page, so they've been included here as we try to find the best way of presenting these images.......and collecting the names!
 
 
Just click on any of the photos to see the 'named' version...

----------
A 'VE Day' party photo taken in the field adjacent to the corner of The Grove and Wimborne Rd ....
....that ground is now  occupied by the homes in Moordown Close.
 

Just click on the photo to see the 'numbered' version.... and do let us know if you can recognise any faces

This one is a group photo taken of the Sunday School at Moordown Baptist Church in, we believe, 1938.
 
 
As you can see, the number of folk already identified in this photo is pretty impressive.  Our thanks are mostly due to Betty Foster  - now living at Bear Cross  - for many of the names. Thanks too, to Russ Barnes and Roy Andrews, who  have contributed  names as well .....maybe there's  more to come?...

This next one was taken at a party held in McWilliam Rd, to celebrate VE Day in May 1945.  Thanks to Roy Andrews for this one - and for the names we have so far.
Just click on the photo, to see the 'numbers and names' version, and if you recognise anyone else, do let us know...
Feb 2018 ---couple of extra names from Mrs. P. Barbera  - nos. 6 and 75 - both 'Holloways' ... Thanks for those - any more anyone?.....

The next is also from a VE Day celebration. This time taken outside the Moordown Congregational Church Hall in Malvern Rd (Now Denman's Electrical). Again, just click on the photo to see the 'numbers' version. We now have quite a few names for this one too... thanks to Jill Way (neé Oliver - no.47 in the photo) for the names so far. If you do recognise any of the faces we don't yet have names for, do let us know!
 
 
This next one is of Moordown Bowls Club.  Taken  - as many of you will recognise - outside the pavilion at the Moordown Recreation Ground.
We do not, at the moment, have any names - or even a date! - for this photo. Can you help?..... 
You can click on the photo to get a closer look at the faces, in the 'numbered' version of the image...
