Penrose and who else?

One of the photos featuring William Penrose.

This is the first of three photos sent in by Gazette reader Jill Clark, which all feature her grandfather, William Penrose.

He was born in Amble in 1890 and is sitting on the ground at the front of this picture.

Jill has no idea which hockey club it was or when it was taken.

Jill’s grandparents moved to Alnwick and ran G Penrose & Son (William was the son) which has been in the family ever since and is now owned by her brother.
