Pictures From The Archives – January 21

Welcome to this week's selection of nostalgia photos from the pages of the Shropshire Star.

Councillor Ernie Griffiths of Wellington cuts a cake adorned with lots of little trees. We don't know why, and in fact know virtually nothing about this picture in our files, but we do recognise Ernie, who was a local councillor for many years. He became chairman of Wellington Urban District Council in May 1965 for a year of office, so as he is wearing a chain of office a likely date for the picture is between May 1965 and May 1966 (unless of course he served more than one term). But who are the other people on the picture? And what exactly was the occasion? Over to you...
