My uncle tells me that back in the late 1950's, the fish and chip shop opposite the Greyhound pub, was called Annie Dalby's Fishshop. Does anyone remember this?

The first image, I believe, is of Redhill Methodists football team and is taken on the east side of Mansfield, just opposite the old Bestwood Lodge Drive.
