Susan Shaw wrote to us, and included some interesting group shots which we've been pleased to add to our archive. It's photos like these which keep alive the recent past, and which we hope will provide a social record for those future generations interested in how we used to live. Susan writes:

I have attached some photos of my mother Florence Winifred Bird, nickname Tut as a child but known as Win all her life.
She lived at 79 Victoria Road with her parents Florence  (nee White) & William Ernest (Bill) and sisters Anne Doreen & Kathleen.
Auntie Kath (married name Hall) became a midwife and worked at Mexborough Montagu as a night sister for many years from about 1956-1979ish when she retired. She will have delivered many Mexborough babies over those years & many people will remember her I should think. She is now 92 years old & moved from Mexborough about 10-15 years since to live near her daughter in West Yorkshire.
