Day trip to Blackpool?

Bonsall lads out in Blackpool, around 1938

Lee Knowles, of Chaddesden, sent us this photo of what he thinks is a day trip out by Bonsall lads to Blackpool.

He explained: “My father is in the middle of the front three. I think the chap holding the handle-bars could be Norman Wand but I can’t be sure (perhaps some of the older readers could confirm, or even name some of the others in the photo). Again estimating the ages of the lads, I would date the photo pre-war, about 1938.”
