Faces From the Past -

Following the success and popularity of our school photograph page, we have now started to assemble photographs of groups of people from Beeston - church groups, societies, sports teams, outings, and the like - which can be accessed from the links given below. As is so often the case, many of those on the photographs - or even the group itself - are unidentified and some cannot be dated precisely. We would welcome any suggestions for these so that they can be properly recorded for posterity.

Click on any of the small images to display the full size picture and the names, dates and details of any that are identified. Recently added group photographs, and those with additional names or other information, are shown with red captions -
