Freda. Iam sure that is Mr McGivern on piano and Mrs McGivern in back row. I think Mr Mc Givern was a painter. ;--)

Art, think you could be right about Mr McGivern being a painter. If my memory serves me right
I think that where they lived on Church St., was a shop, selling paint and wallpaper etc.

Because I don't allow facebook links on here ::-((


actually no, you just did not encode it properly (I''ll do it for you now) you need to highlight the website address (in the same way you copy and paste it) and click on URL in the little boxes above - that makes the link "clickable" once you post it :-C

and in case anyone can't see it (as is the case sometimes with that site) here it is:
