Tommy Stamp on Horse.
Tommy a well known farmer and milk man in Tupton and Wingerworth is sat on the Horse with Margaret his daughter. Tommy's father is holding the horse and the young woman we think is Edna Haykin ( nee Westbury ) who did some work on the farm.
Kathleen Turner front right with Harold Thorpe rear centre. Harold married Edna Turner and she and Harold built the detached house at the top of Whitehouse Farm drive which was in land presumably given them by Edna's father Herbert Turner. Harold was a joiner and undertaker and moved to Ashover.
Rebecca and Herbert Turner with Kathleen (then Turner) became Stamp. The Turners bought Whitehouse Farm when the Hunloke estate was sold off.
John Madin who built and named Madin Street and other properties in Tupton. Lived in big stone house above Madin street
Whitehouse Farm around 1955 with the opencast going on in the field operated by a Howie? Elvin?
Not sure whee this is. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

This was taken in 1953 and as far as I know is the only one that shows the view down Cross Street towards Queen Victoria Road. I'm the one in the pram and my mum is outside our house distracting me with a home made woollen rattle. Johnson's shop was on the left hand corner and the farm across the road is just obscured by the building on the right. They pulled down our house when I was 11 years old.
