Won­der­ful glimpse of Wick­low in times past

Bray People - - DOWN THE YEARS -

OLD PHO­TOS can help give a glimpse into a lo­cal­ity's past, as is cer­tainly the case with these two im­ages of Wick­low Town in days gone by.

Taken along the High Street area in 1952 by an un­known pho­tog­ra­pher, the pic­tures show mem­bers of the Tim­mins fam­ily play­ing with other chil­dren with whom they shared their neigh­bour­hood.

Mar­garet Sharp (nee Tim­mins) - who now lives in the UK, hav­ing em­i­grated with her fam­ily in 1955 - brought the pic­tures back with her on a re­cent re­turn visit to Wick­low to see dis­tant re­la­tions, among them lo­cal butcher Derek Dunne, her cousin.

Present in the pic­tures are Mar­garet and her sib­lings Andrew, Patrick and Ellen (born to Patrick and Rosanna Tim­mins of New Street, Wick­low Town) as well as fel­low High Street res­i­dents Rosanna and Eleanor Flynn and Carl Cooney.

The other chil­dren in the pic­ture are un­known, and the Sharps would be very in­ter­ested in get­ting in touch with them if any­one can recog­nise who they are. They can be reached on 0044 1582 606405.
