Thursday 26th January 2012

David Aveling presented ‘Our Village’ slides of Treeton in the 60s.

After a long wait, Treeton History Group has very kindly been been given the slides of Eddie Hinchcliffe - now deceased. These are photographs of Treeton in the sixties taken by Eddie Hinchcliffe and Lewis Thomas.

The presentation started with a picture of Eddie in the stocks outside St Helens church and then moved on to show several views from the top of the church tower showing the whole of the village as it was then. He then concentrated on village life, first the shops, the Reading Rooms, the school, the pit, the farms, the Miner’s Welfare club and the Station Hotel. The pictures evoked many memories of the past and everyone enjoyed spotting their relatives or friends and even themselves in the photographs.

There was so much discussion about who was who in the photos that there wasn’t time to see them all, but David has promised that he will show them again at a later date. Many thanks to go to David Aveling for transferring the slides onto computer and creating the Power Point presentation.
