I don't know if we are appearing in the search engines better or if the new Twitter feed on the home page is having an effect but in the last 3 weeks we have had several emails from various people providing information on previously miscellaneous or unknown images.

We have had a school identified on another forum topic, 3 or 4 soldiers identified from the Nameless Forces section and one of the photos in the miscellaneous section has also been recognised. I have moved this photo to the Briercliffe Women section, http://www.briercliffesociety.co.uk/Pho ... /Girl2.htm

Also, I have updated the photo archive this last week.

Rockyrobin has kindly sent some Haggate school photos for inclusion on the website. These have now been added but as the site doesn't appear to render in any sensible order, these are the links to the new pictures.

Thanks Rockyrobin :D

Quite a significant update to the photo archive tonight with thanks to Susan 359 for sharing her photos with us. Too many updates to list here but, if you go to http://briercliffesociety.co.uk/Photo%20Archive.htm you will see which albums have been updated.

We have received several new photos this week. Rather than people try to navigate and find them amongst the older photos, I have created a folder titled 'New' to make life easy. I will eventually move these pictures into relevant folders.

If you can name anybody in the photos submitted by Newell Thornton, please either leave messages here or use the Contact Us link on the main site.

Thank you to Mike, Richard and Newell for sharing their photographs with us.

Gloria, her husband William and Richard Parker have kindly sent me details of childrens names on some of the Haggate school pictures. To make it easier to find them, I have moved the ones that have been updated into the 'New' album. I will, eventually, move them back into the School photos, Haggate subsection.

Thank you for the updates
