Can you put any names to these great photos? There is one of a Mr. Page who I believe gave the crown to the Queen. Double click to enlarge the photos to have a closer look!

The young lady Joan Mann could be the neice of my Grandfather Robert Smith, the age fits with my records, if this is the Joan Mann related to my family then thankyou so so much for the photo, we have no photo's of this side of our family. Will have to look further to confirm it is the same lady. Her parents George & Mary Ellen Mann (nee Bradley).

How wonderful to find pictures of my father Gerald Page! I'm the youngest of the bunch of 11 along with twin brother Philip. Gerry loved to organise events in Tilbury and was secretary of both the Railway Club and the Tute over the years. He used to tell the story of how he gave Max Bygraves his chance when he was promoting at Tilbury Tute.
