These are all of wedding in Mellor or people from Mellor during the 1930s.

There's one annotated on the back as the "Miners Arms", which, according to Jack Turnbull's "Last Orders Please" was once at Moor End in Mellor. However, the sign over the door says the "Jordan Arms" and the landlord was William Butler. A bit of surfing suggests that this was in New Mills - can anyone confirm?


After investigations by MLHS's Bill Beard the following comment has been added for this image: https://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/displayimage.php?pid=9057

The map link below gives the location of the Jordan Arms at Jordanwall Nook. In Jack Turnbull's book "Last Orders Please" he suggests that one of the pubs in the area was known as the Miners but was not the official name. A bit like the Foresters in Romiley that is known as the 'Piggy'. There is more info in the MLHS book by Derek Brumhead about mining in the area. https://maps.nls.uk/view/114586112

Further to the Braddock's Garage photos from Graham Meakin yesterday two more photos have been added today.

These show his grandfather's family picnicking at Greenclough Farm in Strines in the early 1900s plus a photo of the same location in 2014:

This morning a new album has been started featuring a series of photos provided to Marple Local History Society by Hilary Ellam:

The photos in this album were given to MLHS by Hilary Ellam whose parents and grandparents were from Mellor. Hilary's parents were Peter Davis and (Winifred) Shirley Davis (nee Hall).  Hilary’s grandparents were Annie Mary Hall (nee Daniels) and Bernard Hall.  Bernard Hall ran a butcher’s shop in Mellor with his brother,  as well as being a part time postman.  The Davis family were tailors from Marple Bridge. Barbara Hall and Shirley were sisters. Hilary reckons that the majority of the photographs were taken in the 1930s when her Aunt Barbara, born in 1925, would have been in the guides.

The first photos added are from a Mellor Carnival / Rose Queen event in the 1930s. There will be quite a few other Mellor related images added soon.

Thanks to Bill Beard at Marple Local History Society we now know that this location is The Bongs on Cobden Edge.



So it's now been moved to the Mystery People Gallery, as we still have no idea who this group of ladies are.

Twenty images from the Janet Holmes collection have been added to the Virtual Tour this morning:

https://visitmarple.co.uk/photos/thumbnails.php?album=lastup&cat=0

They're a mixed bag covering all kinds of subjects but I particularly like this one of a parade passing the old police station and the Bowling Green pub on Stockport Road near the Cross Lane junction:



I knew there was one of the same event already on the tour and in searching that out I've realised that the parade is probably celebrating the Investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1911. Those three blurry feathers on the front of the bikes waiting on Willow Grove being the clue:



There is also a location that I don't recognise. Can you help?:
