Old Chesterfield Photos / Another old one - where could it be?

At first I thought it was taken outside the shop on the corner opposite ST Johns Church in Tupton.
I believe the shop was originally built by George Stevenson for his railway workers.
However there is no junior school opposite side of the road.
It was probably taken around the same time as the photo outside the Church and is my great grandparents with my grandfather and his brothers in the cart.

Tried a couple of things with this one OC, obviously I'll let you know if I hear owt  ;)
Any idea why one of the faces is blurred out if you don't mind me asking?

The picture wasn't in good shape Fly and a relative cleaned it up the best he could, made a pretty good job of it as well, but unfortunately the little ones face  still couldn't be made clear enough to see.

My grandfathers family moved here from Gloucester and the Church may be there but as we don't know the exact date it was taken it remains a mystery.

I think the couple took the gay discrimination to heart niche and yes probably did get the cake from somewhere else.
However it needs people to stand against discrimination of any kind to get equality for all.

My daughter upset a lot of taxi drivers when she began her safer transportation for wheelchair users with DCC at the end of the day she was listened to and her findings acknowledged. Improvements were put into place.

The suffragettes fought for their rights as well - and won.

It was refused on religious beliefs and the judge said as they were running a bakery business not a religious business they were out of order.

TBH, both parties have a right IMO but where is the middle ground and where do we draw the line?

Borrowed a book belonging to my dad by Dennis Hobson, a chap who having started work at Hasland Sheds in 1939 must have worked there at some stage at the same time as my Dad. 64 photos mostly local railway so just scanning and cutting as there are 2 per page. Will post on Old chesterfield pics on Faacebook.

Slacker what about posting on here as well, not all members are on facebook  :)

Yes but to prevent the property been targeted by vandals I don't give out locations its one of the main rules of Urban Exploring.

That was one of those times that I wished I was younger.
I just love it and the area it's in.
So sad it's gone to ruin  :(

You know that is so like OH's grandma. She passed on friday but not after seeing her entire family and friends the day before. We knew after her heart attack last weekend that time was short (she also had a blood clot in her arm that was travelling) After seeing OH the day before she passed very peacefully early hours of friday.

Sorry to hear this Emmz, very sad but take comfort in that it was peaceful at the end.

I believe people can and do chose their time to leave us.
In my brothers case last year we knew he hadn't long. It was his daughters birthday on June 30th and mine on July 2nd - he left us on the 1st of July. Ever thoughtful.

As a by the way to my facebook friends on here I will close my account down again for awhile again this year as being the first anniversary of his death I won't be celebrating much.

The Church has to move with the times niche. its been a big failing of theirs over the years and IMO one which has lost its congregations around the UK.

The recent case of the Bakers who refused to make the gay couples cake because it was against their religion, and lost in court when the gay couple challenged it proves that people need to move forward with some parts of their religion.

We don't have  have anyone who can heal us apart from the Dr's or make food to feed thousands out of loaves and fishes.

Would our God really want people to cast out the gay communities?

If they believe in God then He is for EVERYONE!!

I have just come through Wirksworth an hour ago and it is carnival weekend.The place is heaving with people.One pub on the main street must have had at least 200 stood outside having a drink and others looked pretty busy.

Hubby tells me at one time the carnival in Wirksworth always ended in fighting so hoping it's calmer this weekend  :)
