  13. Afternoon lilbill15 - must be your Tablet software/operating system - all my emails from my email provider, btinternet.com, are picked up, from my email server, by Microsoft Outlook package that I have installed on my Desktop PC and for each email I receive there is always a 'Go to this Post' highlighted that when selected takes you to the actual post. My wife uses a Samsung Tablet and I know when she asks me to check anything out on her tablet I get frustrated. I'm so used to a large screen display where normally all options can be seen and accessed from the first screen that is presented, on whatever site you go to. But the Tablet screen being much smaller can't display all the options and it's normally via the three dots, at the top right of the screen, that other options etc. are accessed. This is normally the first screen I get when I go direct to the group site :- I should add that I stick to a Desk Top Pc, with full size keyboard, as my attempts to select options on a small Tablet screen do result in me selecting the wrong option and frustrating myself. Add to that my fingers don't always go to the right area on a Tablet or mobile device and my involuntary reflex actions of the hand and fingers more often than not result in me selecting options I have never dreamed of . I can't use a mobile phone to access the www. I have a 2G mobile, no access to www, that has one use - it goes in the car and is there in case I break down and have to call for assistance. I'm sticking to 21" Desk Top Pc's ⌨️
  14. Fenwick and family at No 2, next door to where @Vic Patterson's wife Doreen Dagless lived.
  15. Photo from David Bailey, grandson of Stuart Young and great grandson of Geordie Graham (Haigh Road then Hollymount Square). Though to be a trip from the Black Bull - but as yet no proof. @HIGH PIT WILMA & @James do you recognise any of this lot?
  16. There are a few doing the rounds with the initials WW and I would also be thinking that Willy Ward took the photos. James said in one of his posts that he bought of the Dr Pit photos from Wily Ward.
  17. @James names and info updated
