I think the photo was taken in the Bellingham Black Bull around 1954 - and judging by their dress, it was after a fairly formal gathering or meeting, and not a night out! What Adam Dodd was doing as the sole male among them is intriguing. Adam served as a postman in Bellingham for many years along with Billy Beattie.
Photographer: It would have been nice to know who the photographer was, as he/she certainly knew their job as the group is professionally composed.
