I imagine all over the UK including Marsden/Holmfirth/Jackson Bridge there are similar scenes to that depicted in the Photo but in a similar vein I have just watched a vintage documentary on the BBC IPlayer about the streets and sounds of Liverpool in 1959 . It is an absolutely brilliant insight into what times were like and if you think its tough times now I urge you to watch this and see how really tough it was then . It shows the innocence of the time when kids made their own entertainment and there is not a phone/games console in sight. If you have half an hour to spare please watch it I personally think its a must to see and poignantly shows how things used to be .

I watched that same documentary yesterday on i-player Captain. I agree with everything you say.
It seems that all the children were so happy and content in those days, but of course they did not understand the struggle that their parents were going through to provide for them.
