MOST of the smartly-dressed people pictured at Morpeth Town Hall in the Images of yesteryear photograph on September 13 have been identified.

Ponteland resident Muriel Sobo got in touch to say that her daughter Femi was second from left in the photo of the Mayoress at Home event in 1987. In the centre is her friend Sue Irvine.

The Mayoress that year, second from right, was Jill McConnell-Wood who taught home economics and needlework at Ponteland High School.

Next to her is then Mayor Ian (Chippy) McConnell-Wood, a former local estate agent. Mrs Sobo could not identify the man to the far left.
