 2 and 4 are vaguely familiar but I can't put a name to them just yet. Any idea what year this is? It's not my age group.

Unfortunately not - I have asked the question but as yet no response from Ellenor Owen.

There was an Ellenor Armstrong married a  Brian Owen in 1959. Total stab in the dark although may help with possible dates if correct.

@Canny lass - @Bedlingtonian - I asked Ellenor  for the approximate year of the photo . Ellenor says she struggles with dates and her responses to my questions have been :-

 

Ellenor Owen
Ellenor Owen Alan Edgar A little bit older than me just be guessing AnnAustin 4 sorry but I'm sure someone will recognise a few on fb
Ellenor Owen Alan Edgar Alan I started infants early 1944 & by that photo I say it was probably 2 yrs earlier not much more the few I can recall my age then would be Sheila Tatlock Ellen Lynskey Kathy Gregg

Bit before my time but they are 2 and 4 are still familiar. Have I seen them on other photos in our excellent gallery perhaps?

My sister, Maureen, must have started about the sma time and she , in her late teens, used to knock about with Sheila Tatlock.  So it's not impossible that I've seen them about in Netherton.

Unfortunately no names. Although Ellenor has mentioned a couple of possibilities no one has positively identified any of them.

@Canny lass - On Ellenor's posting on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group I added a comment saying no one could identify anyone in her photo and she replied :-

 

  • Ellenor OwenAuthor Alan Edgar sad I was born 1939
     
  • Ken Brady
    Ken Brady Alan Brady these would be about ten fifteen years older than you, do any look familiar.
    Hide or report this
    Ellenor Owen
  • Ellenor OwenAuthor Alan Edgar class photo 1937 so this was 6 yrs before I started school they were probably at the village or high school then
    Alan Brady Some faces look familiar but any names by me would only be guesses.
     
    So I said 'Thank you' to Ellenor and left it at that but today shoe posted :-  
  • Hide or report this
  • Names in Evan Martin lno1Jean Thompson Alice z Black Evelyn Scarr Elsie Lee Margaret Simmons Norreen Wright Jean Dickinson Rita Austin the only name I reconise is Rita Austin
    So we finally got the full story and I have added the names, but they might not be in the right order, to the photo and I checked on Amazon for the book as I hadn't heard of this book - I have six of the Martin family books on our area. I found it, and have bought a copy:)
