Normanby Methodist Youth Club

Group Photograph from the mid-1950s

  This photograph shows the members of the Youth Club of the Normanby Methodist Church taken in the mid 1950s.
  At one of our annual exhibitions this photograph was displayed together with the names of club members as remembered by Joan Baines (nee Marshall) who is shown sitting 3rd from left in the front row.
  Exhibition attendees were asked to see who they recognised and correct the names given or add those missing.
  Several did and so another dozen names were added to those shown below the photo - leaving just 4 unknown.

After publication of this photo on our web-site Margaret Holian identified more names (see our Message Board ).
Margaret also recalled that the photograph was taken as a memento for the Hood family when they emigrated to Australia.
[Can anyone confirm this & remember when the Hoods emigrated?]
At our March 2015 meeting more additions and corrections were provided by Ann Ward & Cynthia Womack (nee Dale).
Cynthia said that the photo was probably taken between 1954-56 as she was then away
at Teacher Training College - otherwise she would have been on the photo!

So now we have names for everyone in the photo. Our thanks to all who helped!
