Old Photographs of Bulkington

We are very fortunate to have obtained copies of a number of documents and old photographs of Bulkington which were on display in the Village Hall.

The first, shown here on the left, is the certificate
presented on 30th May 1903 to Ellen Harrell from The Girls Friendly Society Marriage on the occasion when she married John Jacob Bodman Hicks.
The second document, shown right, was that which was sent to the next of kin of Sgt John Jacob Bodman Hicks to advise of his death in battle in The Great War.

If anyone has any more information or photographs we would love to hear from you. Email: bulkingtonorguk@btinternet.com

This collection was compiled from prints that hung in Bulkington Village Hall. As they were starting to deteriorate the Village Hall Committee decided that they should be removed from their frames and preserved by being scanned to computer.The numbered labels were missing from the frames so the present collection has been reassembled by deduction and guess work.The original numbering system has been retained. The descriptive text has been added from the typed sheets which accompany the framed prints.

The collection was made by Mr Keith Gray who scanned, restored and printed copies of original photographs.

Thanks are due to villagers who allowed their original prints to be copied and provided additional information:

Mrs Champion; Mr Ron Elliott; Mrs Rosie Forsey; Mrs Margaret Foster; Mr Anthony Jones; Mr Brian Jones; Mr Jack Pickett; Mrs Raby-Cox; Mrs Jill Topp; Mr Tom Woodward; and the late Mr Bill Breach.
