Hi Jim, Pretty sure that the guy, in front is Mike Luff, and the guy standing,behind his son is David Politt.
Regards, John

Hi John,

Not sure about your Mike L naming, the same person re-appears in a photo of the horse gin wheel in Scaleburn and looks quite female in that image, Definitely DP but I don't know about the two younger folk.

Out of interest John, why do your posts often arrive with a duplicate?

Just a few more of JFM's left to put onto AditNow including some interesting ones from Hard Level Gill's 1970/80's fluorspar plant that was also covered in an article in BM 100.

Jim

Hi Jim & Barney,
Just returned from the U.S.A. Where the last posting was placed!
Hence sometimes,things go astray!
The pose of the first guy is typical of Mike Luff hence my identification,
Certainly one of the smaller persons is David Politt’s children.
Cannot remember their names!
John
