A dinner treat for the Congregational men

November 11, 2015

Here we have a photo of a group of men from the Congregational Church sitting down to a meal together.

We think the photo dates to between 1963 and 1972 and we believe that the location is The Manse.

The men were clearly being looked after by four waitresses.

It looks as though the photo was taken just before the chaps started tucking in to their starters. It looks as though they had a choice – typical of the period – of grapefruit or prawn cocktail.

We know who some of the men are and we’ll start with the chap nearest us on the left and work round clockwise.

We do not have any names for the women.

Do let us know if you can name any of the people or can tell us the occasion.
