More Quarry Bank: September, 1952.

An anonymous "readah" has very kindly sent a first generation scan of the above pic, providing much more detail. Such as:

In slightly related shiznizzle, a pic of the Old Dutch on Penny Lane, co-proprietor of which was, o' course, for a while, Mr Pete Shotton, and a place much frequented by them Beatles on their way home from city centre gigs:

As previously noted, the sign endures, though little else does.


  1. i see the sme Picture but not more

  2. Ahh, pedantry. OK...to spell it out - this one is a first generation copy ie much better quality, and higher resolution than the previous one. You can see much more detail as a result if you download the pic and zoom in. That is the "more" bit. (Sighs deeply.)

  3. (...in exasperation...lest there be any etc.).

  4. That's john while in Dovedale Primary School. I don't see why it says Quarry Bank

  5. No, it is Quarry Bank, very shortly after John et al went in to the first form (1R). Teachers (or "Masters") didn't wear robes at Dovedale, for one thing.
