Archive Notes:

Merry Bells Centenary 1988 booklet. An almost complete collection of the photographs in this booklet, but does not include political groups.

Photographs are all stored elsewhere under relevant building, club, society etc., but are collected here for ease of reference. They appear in the order in which they are shown in in book.

The group of ladies in the fourth image is not, as the booklet suggests, the opening of the Merry Bells in 1888. Rather, it is a group of women who were members of the Womens' Wednesday Afternoon Class, and was taken in 1908. They are:

Back Row Left to Right: Mrs Putt, Mrs R Gomm, N/K, Mrs Nash, Mrs Summers, Mrs Dungey, N/K, Mrs J Munt, Mrs Life

Second Row Left to Right: Mrs Edward Tombs (Great-Grandmother), Mrs Gould, Rose Tombs (Great Aunt), Mrs Knight, Mrs Hilsdon or Mrs Whiting, Mrs Davis, Mrs Rose Pym (Great-great Aunt), Mrs Smith, N/K, Mrs Shorter

Third Row: Widow Hilsdon, Mrs Caroline East (midwife), Mrs Goodin, Mary Pym (Third cousin), Mr Atherton (Manager of The Merry Bells - Temperance Hotel), Mrs Atherton, N/K, Mrs Barlow, Mrs Powell, Mrs Brazil, Mrs Mills.

Front Row Left to Right: Mrs J Washington. Mrs White. Mrs Bartlett. Mrs East. N/K. Annie Munt

Groups and societies only are shown also at record 2312
