The Waverley Hotel, Blackpool – 2022

With reference to J164 above, from Sam Kilburn 18 April 2016:

I doubt that this is the cricket club, but rather a photo of people who went to the Waverley Hotel, as the man on the far left is my father Henry Kilburn next to him is Arthur Harrison, I think the woman fourth from the left is Isobel Griffin, sixth from the left is May Yeadon, bottom Right is Arthur Harrisons sister, next to her is my mother Nellie Kilburn.
I know some of the others but can’t remember their names.

Don’t know why you think this is Guisely cricket club as all the ones I know are old Yeadoners who went to the same Blackpool Hotel year after year.

Adminch02 – 18 April 2016:
We can only use the information given with photographs such as these Sam when they are donated to us.

Teleg – 18 April 2016:
I think this is the Waverley Hotel at Blackpool where these people went year after year in the late 40’s & early fifties.

Editor Jack Brayshaw, 25 April 2022.

Dear Sam Kilburn, Your comments on photograph J164, I agree are correct and thank you for the information you previousley supplied to AHS on this image. Today, whilst migrating this information to our new website I Googled the Waverley Hotel both in Scarborough and in Blackpool. Blackpool hit the mark as you said and if you compare both J164 and J164A images you can clearly see the door entrance and masonary are the same.
To this end, I will leave both images for all to see and compare and that with a little investigation, we can, still provide answers. Thank you once again. Jack. AHS. 25 April 2022.

Re G248
facebook information:

Lawrence Walker: Very good team that, either Jim or Ronnie Claughton, Rachel.
Rachel O’Connor: Back, left to right – Tony Crowther, Roy Forrest, Jim Claughton (I think), Marsden Claughton, Hedley Houseman, Ron Featherstone. Front, left to right – John Claughton (boy), Colin Taylor, Michael Mitchell, Mick Stocks, John Mahoney, John Whitaker. Picture taken in 1960s.
Rachel O’Connor: Ah yes Ronnie, I think Lawrence, there were a few of them, all good cricketers. My cousin John Fordham and Jim Robertson joined this team and it was a great team. A permanent feature in the Waddilove Cup finals of those days.
Christine Robinson: Colin Taylor, bottom left, Maths teacher at Morley Grammar school, and having the patience of Jobe giving our son extra tuition, enabling him to secure a place at Blackpool college of art & technology in the late 70s. Now a respected name designing stamps for all the commonwealth countries. Our heartfelt thanks go to him.
