Now there will be many who have fond memories of walking in a Whit Walk procession.
It was a time when families decked out their children in the finest new clothes. For some it was about saving all year and for others it was period of going into debt.
Either way it was a badge of pride that your child would take part in the best that could be bought or made.
It is a topic I have visited in the past and will do again.*
And here today is one from sometime in the early 20th century. The banner announces that this is the Christ Church Mission in Harpurhey, and that is pretty much all I have.
In time I will go looking for the Church and puzzle over the street name on the right hand side of the picture.
I am rather hoping that someone will have something on the church and will share it.
Of course it might not be a Whit Walk procession.
But for now that is it.
Picture; Harpurhey, date unknown from the collection of David Harrop
