Party in the 50s

Possibly new year

Gilda Sickelmore (5th from right) with husband Derek behind her.
This is taken outside Gouldings Wire Works in about 1950 I think. My uncle, Derek Sickelmore, is 4th from left and I think that's my dad, Gerald Hudson 4th from the right.

Many unknown faces in this party picture. My auntie Gilda Sickelmore (nee Dick) and uncle Derek are in the middle at the front with friends Colin and Sylvie Peters.

  • The Gouldings Wireworks in the photo were based just down Yamburg Road on the left. They also took over the old Market on the right just past St. Anne’s Road. They employed quite a few men who didn’t fancy the building industry.
