Robin Nicholls Collection - Goodmans and Wilf Alp

(Photographs taken by Robin Nicholls as a young lad in the late 60s with a Coronet “Ambassador” camera)


My parents said this was the old 'workhouse' (not sure about that) but the derelict buildings were on the site now occupied by GOODMANS old folks home. I think these structures were taken down in the 1970's.

Wilf Alp

This is a photo 'posed' by Wilf in his forge which was a favourite hangout spot watching the horses being shod. Wilf had been ill and kindly came into the forge for this photo. If you are able to forward this onto Phyllis Alp for me I would be grateful.
