An idyllic scene captured in December 1959. The little boy is playing with a ball with Deane Church in the background.

The Bolton News: Deane, 1959

The photographer was standing on Junction Road and the pub you can see on the left of the picture is the King’s Head which at the time was tied to the Walker’s Brewery in Warrington.

The brewery would later become Tetley Walker.

It's a long shot but does anyone know who the little boy is? Leave a comment if you think you know who he might be or if the photo brings back any memories.
