Andy Slack was having a clear out at his parents’ home when he found this Saltergate Youth Club photo of 1948.

The picture had been kept by Andy’s dad, who passed away five years ago. Andy said: “My father would have been about 17 on the photo. I just wanted to put the photo in the public domain hoping that others may be recognised and maybe someone may know the exact location.”

Here are some of the names on the photos. Do you know who the others are?
