I lived on Windermere Crescent then my mother passed away in 1955 and we moved to Broadoak Road Smallshaw to live next door to my gran until 1959 when we moved to Higher Openshaw after my father remarried then later when in my teens returned to Ashton to live with my sister and then with one of my aunts.

We lived on Ashton Moss during the 50s and my Uncle used to come round the estate with a small van and caravan selling groceries and then he converted an coach into a mobile shop he also had a shop on Queen Street for a while before he moved to High Street Staylbridge.

I think now is the time to rest Rooney we have enough potential goalscorers without him,and put  Carrick back in to replace Fellani

Hi Maxxie, this photo is of, maybe, Infants 4 or Junior 1, St. Ann's, 1955 or 56. I'm sure I have another one somewhere.  I'll go on a photo hunt and see if I can find it.  I'd be interested to know if you recognise any of the faces.  I can still name quite a few of my classmates and wonder where and what has happened to them over the years. 

Looking at the photo from the left 2nd row from bottom 5th girl in is my sister Yvonne Stanfield.

One of my aunties lived in one for a few years during the 50s/60s.

Thank you, Meg and Pamela, for your kind words.  I walked for St. Ann's when we lived in Buttermere Road and then for St. Christopher's when we moved up to Broadoak Road. 

Here are three more photos I've found.

The first of of of St Ann's May Queen and her retinue circa 1918.  My Uncle Bob is one of the page boy on the left.

The second is St. Ann's Queen with her Maids of Honor taken about 1948.  My eldest sister, Linda, is third from the right, looking very sweet.

The third is of the young men and Children of Mary with the statue of Mary, late 1950.  Again, my sister Linda is right behind the girl in the front.

St Anns Queen in the 2nd photo taken in 1948 is my sister Joan Stanfield
