Do you recognise any of the people in the following 3 photographs?

 

 

This photo may have been taken in Portslade or Southwick in about the 1920's or early 1930's.

My Grandfather, William Charles Willard (1894-1948) is the one with the cigarette, hand in pocket and leaning on the wheel.

At the time he would have been employed at the Gas Works.

The little boy is John Patching and he is with his mother Dolly Patching, nee Warman (1905-1993), my Great Aunt.

The lady seated in the front row, second from the right is my Great Grandmother, Flora Warman, nee Boorman (1868-1952).

Frank Young, with the help of his sister-in-law, has identified 5 of the ladies in the above photo.  They are Audrey Prosser and her mother Mrs. Prosser, nee Streeter, standing in the middle of the back row.  Next to Mrs. Prosser is her sister-in-law, Mrs. Streeter married to Bert Streeter.  Then down on the front row, seated on chairs, first on the left is old Mrs. Streeter, mother of Mrs. Prosser, and next to her is little Mrs. Parsons who was Frank's next door neighbour in East Street, Portslade.  Frank's elder brother, Jim Young, married Violet Prosser, sister of Audrey.

Pam Evans tells me that her Great Grandmother Elizabeth Wells is seated first on the left.  Elizabeth owned the approved school for boys in Mile Oak.
