I've had this photo for years and as things have moved on 'doon the pier' thought folk would enjoy this one from some time ago, not sure when.The man on the left is Mack Johnston, my uncle 5th from the left is my Dad 'Pat' Johnston, then Martin Thomson, last on the right is Bill Binks (as I knew him) the photo is taken loading the Amelia from the Amelia stores as the building was called then.
