St Mary's Photo Album
While some of the photos are self-explanetory, for many we have no descriptions other than the file names. Each photo has been captioned by its file name and therefore almost all of them are in alphabetical order.
If you recognise any of the faces in these photos, or can give us further details of any events or groups pictured here we'd love to hear from you!
With thanks to Lawrence Gregory for supplying these photos
Altar Boys 1
One altar boy in this photo has been identified by his son Raymond as Frederick Aloysius Pickles, front row, 3rd from the left.
He was born in 1900 and looks about 7 so the photo must have been taken about 1907.

1930 First Mass of Fr V Farrell
Frederick Aloysius Pickles, the father of one of our current parishioners, Raymond Pickles, is featured on this photo;
he is the 3rd from the left on the back row, aged 30.
Raymond writes, "I was born in 1930 and, according to family tradition, was the first baby baptized by the newly ordained Fr. Farrell,
who was a close friend of my father's. They were both telegraph boys until Fr. Vincent went off to the seminary.
Apparently, he presented me on the high altar after the baptism. Luckily for me he didn't drop me!"
