A quick search does not give any hits for "VE Day" and yet there will have been lots of street parties - and some photographs of the people, which will now be of interest to the relatives. Memory jogging and all that. Cameras and photography were not that common at the end of the war but for a special occasion like VE day I am sure they were dusted off and used.

I have two taken of groups of people in Stonehouse Road, Wallasey Village. Some of the people in the photos can be identified (by mum) but others - well, maybe descendants will recognise.

First photo - Left to right
Unknown
My nan - Emily Hughes
Mag Dean
Elsie Prowse
Unknown
Mrs Connolly

AND ESPECIALLY FOR NEW WIKI MEMBER Jille who was asking ::

Second photo - Left to right
Peter Prowse
Georgie Lester
Kathleen Lester
Male - unknown
Cissy Dean (MacCormack)
Female - unknown (same as on extreme left of first pic)
Mrs Clough
My Nan, Emily Hughes
Kneeling - Evelyn (Eva) Howard

UPDATE

After I submitted the two pictures in the previous post I have (a) found the original photos (which had some names on the back) (b) spoken again with mum and another elderly Village resident. We think we have now properly identified the people in the photos
