Silver Jubilee street party, June 1977, Old Swan, Liverpool
Our display Growing up in the city: in photographs
features a range of fantastic photographs depicting Liverpool childhoods from the 1870s to the 1990s, from the Museum of Liverpool's
After searching through many postcards, photographs and glass plate negatives in our stores, it was a hard choice to select the final 25 images. I could have included so many more - especially as I wanted to ensure that lots of different children and childhoods were represented.
One of my favourites is this image of a young mum, with presumably her two young sons in Old Swan - Ulster Road, we believe. It was taken in June 1977 by local photographer, Harold Douglas Avington.
It would be wonderful if we could find out who they are. Do you know them? Are you in the photograph? Please leave a comment on this blog post if you have any information.
The exhibition is open from Wednesday 21 October 2015 in Education Room 1 on the ground floor of the Museum of Liverpool.
