Also pictured is Mr Ferneyhough's son (young boy in the hat) who later opened a sweet shop on Church which some Beacon readers may remember. Young apprentice Leonard Powell can also be seen in the photograph who later went off to fight in World War One.

As with last week's picture of the week, readers are invited to guess the year. Guesses can be sent to [email protected].
