We have a nostalgia special this week, with six more pictures from Hyndburn’s past.
The first three photographs were submitted by George Clarke from Accrington and he is pictured in all three images from the 1940s.
Mr Clarke was a member of the St James’ Church Accrington Scout group in 1942 and is shown on the bottom row third from the left when he was around 10 years old.
The picture shows the female group leader getting married and surrounded by other Scouts.
The next picture shows Mr Clarke in the Woodnook Junior FC team in 1949 when they competed in the old Accrington Under 18s league. He is on the bottom right of the photograph. Also pictured is manager Horace Frear.
The final picture from Mr Clarke shows him in the Great Harwood Youth FC team, also taken in 1949.
He is pictured on the bottom row, second from the left, and played in both teams that season.
The next picture is from Maureen and Joseph Arnfield, of Whalley Road in Clayton-le-Moors.
It shows Maureen’s father-in-law Joseph Arnfield Snr third from the left at the Royal Oak, commonly known then as ‘Bottom Hole’.
It was taken in the 1950s when he was playing dominoes with his friends.
Pictured left to right are: Eddie Lane, Fred Higgins, Joseph Arnfield Snr, Judd Crowther, Ray Chadwick and Les Sharples.
The next picture is from Norman Sumner and shows Cubs Baptist Church members in 1948 or 1949.
Norman, formerly of Accrington and now living in Langho, is shown on the top row fourth from the left. The picture shows left to right on the top row: Kevin Holden, Norman Davis, Bob Haworth, Norman Sumner, Jim Raynor and Brian Tattersall.
On the bottom row is Alan Lowe, Keith McKenna, Harry Troope and Brian Webster.
Our final photograph was submitted by Josie Jackson from Accrington and shows members of the Chaigeley Manor Ladies Committee in 1973. It was taken by former Observer photographer Garth Dawson during their annual open day and was attended by Accrington’s Mayor, Councillor Parkinson, and his wife.
