This photo was supplied by our Whalley correspondent, Jean Miller.

Jean discovered it when she was sorting out the belongings of her late mother, Mrs Peri Adele Chatburn.

She believes the bridegroom on the picture may have been a Methodist minister either in Whalley, which her mother and father (Carey Chatburn) attended, or at Clayton Street Methodist Church, Blackburn, where her parents were married.

Jean’s father worked at the Lancashire Evening Post and Lancashire Telegraph before becoming a reporter at the Clitheroe Advertiser and Times where his brother-in-law and former Clitheroe Mayor Frank Dugdale was editor. Working his way up, Jean’s father himself later became editor.

Jean believes the photo is from the late 1920s, but she would love to know more. Anyone with information can contact Jean on 01254 824312.
