Morley Top Station, Cross Church Street Working Men
Description:
1937. View shows a crowd of people on the platform of Morley Top Station waiting for the train to Cleethorpes. They were members of the Cross Church Street Working Men's Club along with their families, on what was to become an annual trip to the seaside. Children were given pop and crisps plus two shillings and sixpence spending money. Trains consisting of ten coaches were ordered from British Rail to carry between 500 and 600 people. The club continued to use the train for their annual outing until 1987 after which the cost became too great and the decision was made to travel by coach instead.
