Do you know these faces from the 70s?

Accrington Observer - - LOOKING BACK - GARTH DAW­SON

AM­BU­LANCE staff from Ac­cring­ton are shown in this weeks top pic­ture.

They were snapped by the for­mer Ob­server pho­tog­ra­pher in 1977.

Garth said: “The pic­ture shows mem­bers of Ac­cring­ton am­bu­lance sta­tion on Broad Oak Road giv­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion to the chief of­fi­cer, with other mem­bers of staff look­ing on.

Our next pic­ture shows a su­per­mar­ket cricket team, also in 1977.

Garth said: “This is the cricket team from Asda su­per­store in Ac­cring­ton but I don’t know who they played or where.”

Our fi­nal pho­to­graph this week shows the land at the end of Queens Road West and Whal­ley Road called ‘The Mount’ in 1971.

Garth said: “It is now oc­cu­pied by the EMSI Unit run by the NHS and pre­vi­ously a large pri­vate house stood there.” Do you recog­nise the staff at Ac­cring­ton am­bu­lance sta­tion, or know who the cricket team was play­ing?

Why not let us know and send us your mem­o­ries to our letters page?

We want to pub­lish your old pic­tures. They can be from any era up to the 1990s.

Please bring them to our Mar­ket” Hall of­fice or email them to ac­cringtonob­server@ men­ and tell us why they are im­por­tant to you. Con­tact Garth at garth@daw­song84.
