Gazette reader George Scott provided a wealth of information on the photo, top, published last week.

He said: “This was a joint concert of the Seahouses Choir with a group of singers from Newbiggin, who being from another fishing community often sang with the Seahouses Choir.

“Father Tom Dawson was the parish priest and Rev Norman Smith the methodist minister at Seahouses who accompanied the choir. Tom is from a Seahouses fishing family and had sung with the choir in the past.”

The Seahouses members pictured are Ron Rawlins, Jim Stephenson, Dougie Douglas, George Dawson, John Dawson, Tom Robinson, Gordon Archbold, Cyril Jones, Pat Laidler, Andy Hunter, Robert Fawcus and George Scott.
