Hi, i'm pretty certain that the middle row children second and third from the left, should read as A.Mankin and J.Mankin respectively. This i am almost certain as i am researching my family tree and the photos look identical to my mother (Audrey Mankin) and her slightly older sister (Joyce Mankin)

Hi Anthony - Thanks for your comments. We don't claim 100% accuracy - everything is subject to potential errors! (such as the original being printed back-to-front - though don't think this is the case as the middle row, second from left girl's jacket does up the "girls' way"). Is there a possibility that you are "reading the names back to front"? Our convention is that names are directly below each child - so that the girl in the back row with the white collar would be I Otterburn..

Hi, thanks for your reply. Based on your convention that the names are directly below each child, and your example that the girl in the back row with the white collar would be I Otterburn, i can say with 99.9% accuracy that the girl 2nd from left middle row is my mother Audrey Mankin and the 3rd from left middle row is her sister (my Aunty) Joyce Mankin.Both are wearing identical blazers.I have compared this photo to photos i have from a similar time and can confirm they are the same people.

Thanks, Anthony. I'm sure you're right. Before I correct either the order of the names, or mirror the image - can you tell me which you think would be correct? Did your mother part her hair on her left (as in the photo)? Both blazers currently do up "the girls way" (though that of the girl next to J Mankin currently does up "the boys way"). We have had instances of the photographer printing them mirrored... I am also asking my "name source", and the provider of the image for his views...

Hi there, just to join in, my auntie Phylllis Robson is third from left in back row, and my mum, Mary Robson is first left front row. I'm a 100% sure of this! I have no pics of my mum as a young girl ( but she is unmistakeable) so I was overjoyed to see this picture when I found the website!
