Salem Methodist Church - Walking Day  (approx 1958 or 1959)
It had rained earlier which is why the ladies were carrying all the coats
On the left of the photo is Sunday School teacher Alice Nuttall.  I think the Rose Queen was called Susan Smith and her train bearers were: possibly one of the Berry Sisters on the left (invisible in photo aprt from her foot),  ?? a girl wearing an Alice band, Joyce and Ethel Berry, Susan Marsden (ie: me in long dress) and on the right is Mrs. Berry (Joyce and Ethel's Mum).  The other Rose Queen following on is (I think!) Susan Smith's older sister (possibly Mary?)

Dave Molloy (R.I.P) -   Folk singer and musician from Haslingden

Joan (his wife) has kindly sent me a short history from Dave's life. Dave took up singing and music after he had been made redundant from his main job after 40 years.  He was doing well but after only a few short years he contracted "Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis" which saw his lungs scar over and his last gig was done with his oxygen tank on stage. Most of the audience that night were fellow folkies and they applauded as if nothing was wrong.  But sadly over the next 12 months he became more and more poorly and died at his home on 21st February 2011.  It's great to know that members of his family including his Grandchildren are also following their Grandads footsteps loving music themselves.  Please click on the links below to hear some of Dave's fabulous music.

Hi Bryan,

Apologies for my approach however I came across your pages on the web as I have been searching for information on my Mum who passed away aged 42 when I was 16. I am now 46.

Her name was Catherine Callaghan (maiden name) and she was born in Accrington in 1945 and when I search it keeps coming up with St Marys RC school however I am struggling to see a picture of her or locate the picture with her name against it.

This may be a long shot so forgive me for my random approach however I am desperate to find some information and indeed photographs.

Kindest regards


Lucy Flanagan

Frank Jackson at the front on the left, a young Brian Muldowny further back and then back to the front with Jasper Stirling (the vicar and our scripture teacher) in the middle with the glasses on and Mr. Brown on the right hand side. Also on the second row back the gentleman with the glasses on and the trilby I think is Mr. Sam Good and next to him and central behind Mr. Sterling is Mr. Turner. Also further back on the right hand side holding the pole is Alan Hitchen.  Also I think the lad on the right holding the rope might be Peter Haworth

I can just about remember the old Mark Barnes Coach and it was registered either DCB100 or it was OTB 1 - not sure which one, but remember making out many a driver's work ticket for that fabulous coach.
