Scott Hall Hotel, Street Party
1945. Image shows many people, mainly women and children, gathered together for a street party organised by the Scott Hall Hotel in celebration of either V.E. or V.J. day in 1945. The Scott Hall Hotel is situated on Sholebroke Mount between Sholebroke Street and Scott Hall Grove. The shops seen in the background are on the south side of Sholebroke Mount and include, from left to right, William C. Speight, Grocer at number 47, Ernest Johnson, fried fish dealer at number 49 (with the crosses on the windows) and Edwin Crow, confectioners at number 51. Part of the Scott Hall Hotel is visible at the top, left. The children, many wearing party hats, appear to be holding paper bags which are likely to contain their party tea. They are also armed with mugs. These are local families from the surrounding streets and the smiling little girl in the print dress in the centre of the front row is Joyce Burrow who lived at number 3 Scott Hall Grove. Other party goers incude Duggie Harrison, Margaret Murray, Jean Fletcher, Hilda Fletcher, Edward Horsfall, Sheila Barber, Mrs. Paley, Jimmy Grimes, Anne Speight, Joe Barber, Terry Lenton and Kathleen Barker.
