Crowd at the Crown 1950s or early 60s
« on: October 19, 2015, 06:16:39 AM »
Have received this image for the Virtual Tour and I will add it at the next update. The photo is provided by Paul Totterdell and this is what he says about it:

Quote from: Paul Totterdell
Crown Regulars in the 1950s could be up to 1961 as my granddad is in the picture one of the original flat cap crew 2nd row 2nd from the right of the four flat caps, my dad is top row 1st on right with shades on (cool) the big guy on the back row I think is Burt Nutall , bottom row 1st on right Ernie ? Bottom row third from left Fred Adshead. Bottom row 1st on left looks like Dennis Fitzpatrick but could be wrong. They must be Marple Boys as not many blow in's in those days.

Can you recognise anyone else? Could be one for @RAY NOBLE

The 'Big Guy' on the back row is George Nuttall, Bert's Brother, both were wrestlers and boxers.
Front row 4th from left is Mr. Yarwood
Second row left of your grandad I think is Mr Stubbs and right of your grandad is Hughie Humphreys
I think your Ernie is Ernie Close.
