Sporting chance of naming team from the past

editorial image

Sports historian Terry Fletcher has provided this week main picture which shows Holbrook St.Michaels Juniors around 1937. He can identify Len Slack and Alwyn Booth among those on the front row. We would love to hear from anyone who can name the other people pictured.

Thanks to Matt St. Lawrence who wrote in to inform us that the picture of a “tank” in Belper around 1910, which featured in our August 29 edition, was actually of an early veteran lorry or “charabanc” open-topped tour bus. He went on to guess that it was probably an early Renault or American Mack “Bulldog” that may have been used for guided tours and that it bore an R registration plate - which was the original Derbyshire/Derby registration letter.
