Photo: kindly sent in by Elaine Pollard who thinks her ancestor Herbert Pollard is seen in the photo seated to the right hand side of the middle row.

Note on Facebook by Elaine:  

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this group.  I joined in order to research some family history, but I must say that I'm in awe of the work of the page managers and contributors and your dedication to preserving local history.  I believe my grandparents were both born in Haslingden and lived there till they emigrated to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in about 1925.  I think my grandfather, Herbert Pollard (1877-1955) attended St. John's School, Stonefold.
