Family Line- possibly Irish connection? - does anyone know of Ann Carty Hughes, daughter of Elizabeth Sheeves? I am trying to get back from the Sheeves line and getting nowhere. I do note that Carty and Sheeves abound in Ireland but Ann Carty Hughes was in North Wales.

. two interlinked winged circles Here is some interesting symbology to decipher, found in Rochdale. Built about the same time (1925-1930), the Catholic church of St John has an image of Christ in Glory standing on a blue globe representing creation. In the Anglican St Mary the Christ in Glory is standing on two interlinked winged circles. I have some pointers to these but does anyone have any definite ideas as to the use of these winged circles symbols in a Christian Church? Can they be found anywhere else? Thanks.

girl in white nylon boiler suit Short hair girl with flag late 1960's We have some commercial photographs of models- one may be you, your parent or grandparent. The photos were taken mostly in the 1960s with some in the early 70's in North West England. Anyone know these people? Copyright is owned by the unknown commissioner. First one is for an advert of industrial clothing- in this case white nylon, and not from stock- specially made for the photoshoot. The model took away a pair of dungarees, this boilersuit is still with the photographers family.

Water colour painting in very poor condition- torn and folded and paint somewhat crystalised- with unusually four signatures in the margin. Possibly Europe. Undated. Any guesses on where, when and by whom?

Can anyone identify a two reel silent film made between 1917-1921 by Mack Sennett, distributed by Paramount, starting with a drug store wedding in which: the bridegroom is redirected to a rich but portly alternative girl; then back to the original girl (character name Miss Reilly) when she wins a lottery. The lottery agent eats several goldfish in the shop. The child of a customer, with dog, releases a cage of hens into the shop. There is some slapstick involving a large barrel high on a shelf and a fish-tail gas light. The girls father refuses the wedding and the girl later calls for the man at night to elope with him. Copy exists in Stockport but the title has been stripped.

Thanks for your time. Stephen Shaw.
