CHAIRMAN'S SUNDAY 1948 - MIDDLEWICH GUIDES IN CHESTER ROAD


With thanks to Kerry Fletcher and Dave Thompson at Middlewich Town Council
It's the girls' turn in the spotlight this time as we take another  look at the Chairman's Sunday procession in 1948.
Once again, in the right background, we can see the Boosey's Nurseries building and part of the Middlewich Motors premises.
The procession appears to be making its way out of the Nurseries' grounds, prompting further speculation about its itinerary for the day.
It would be useful to know who the MUDC Chairman was that year.
The wonderful lady on the extreme left appears to be marshalling her 'troops' and making sure they are all present and correct ready for  the walk back into Chester Road and Wheelock Street (if that was, indeed, the route taken).
Can someone put a name to her? She's certainly every inch the archetypal scoutmistress, and has something of the look of one of Bertie Wooster's Aunts.
Behind her is the Golden Lion, at that time the haunt of professional men like the local doctors and solicitors and lacking the pub's present day...er....shall we say, flamboyance?
Some of  the pub's customers have come out onto the street to watch the procession go by.

  1. Mother thinks she rememvers a few of the people on this photo. The Lady at the front is Miss/Mrs Hall, 'one of the nicest people you could have met', according to mum. I will sit withmother over the next few days and try to identify others.
