THESE residents of Hull Road, Hedon are obviously having lots of fun! Jim Uney has sent these marvellous photos in – plus his whimsical comments – as part of our Five Photo Sunday. Many, many thanks, Jim. Readers will find these nostalgic and delightful!
If anyone can help with the unknown names, or perhaps tell us what the events were, and when they took place – that would be fantastic!
An off the cuff tug of war event, considering some of the lads are not dressed to pull… but thinking again, maybe some of them are!
