On the far right of the picture, beyond the tail end of the land rover is a small collection of huts. These housed about a dozen pigs belonging to my Dad Charles (Wag) Lomas and my uncle, Tommy Lomas. The two kids crossing the railway in the middle of the picture are, I think, myself and my brother Jeff Lomas It must have been taken in the late 50s.

Thanks for that comment Lou, let's hope it is you.

Purely by coincidence, only yesterday, I came across another version of this photo by J.W.Sutherland (photo 1115). What is strange is the difference in the bottom left corner in front of the shed, with a moving British Rail sign.

If I had to wager which photograph is genuine I would say 1115. I trust J.W.Sutherland's version, since he took the photograph. That photograph is dated 11th March 1961, I hope that helps you.
