Does anyone have any memories or photographs of:
Cecil Shaw, known as George Shaw, born 1920, lived in Mold, Mickle Trafford, Wimbledon, Singapore and Stockport, spent time on HMS Arabis and Bryony and in Marlag und Milag POW Camp. Where did he work and what did he do?
Ireen (known as Reen) Shaw, born 1920, from Northop, lived in Mickle Trafford, Wimbledon, Singapore, Stockport. Worked at John Myers in the mid 1960's.
Do you know any of the people in these photographs (I have obscured the faces of people I already know):
The yellow flowers previously shown here have been identified by the Royal Horticultural Society as Sanvitalia from Mexico- more commonly Creeping Zinnia, although ours did not creep- there are many forms of this abundantly flowering annual. Now here are some pink flowers- anyone know them?
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.
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.
