Name the face.

This delightful picture was taken in Gateshead on VE Day, in May 8, 1945.

It was sent in by Gillian Findlay, of Washington, who says her two older sisters are amongst the youngsters.

"Jasmine Forster (nee Jordan) and Magdalene Porritt (again nee Jordan), are on the right of the picture and wearing rosettes and identical dresses," said Gillian.

"The photo was taken in Colville Street, in Gateshead. This was situated off Camilla Street and led to Belle Vue Terrace, which was a continuation of Gateshead High Street.

"It went up past The Crescent and merged with Durham Road, where the Swallow Hotel is now.

"Also in the picture are probably some of the Quinn family, from Old Durham Road, and some of the Knox family, from Colville Street.

"Apparently," said Gillian, "the lady in the picture was a Mrs Boyes, and my sister Jasmine eventually bought her house in Old Durham Road and still lives there today.

"Jasmine thinks a girl called Norman Cowen is on the photo. She recognises lots of the faces, but can't put names to them.

"I wonder, can any of your Remember When readers help out?"
