Robert Loxley from Margate Kent is wishing to get in touch with Eva Upton (photo of). My mother, Eva Upton was born in 1902 at Jack Lane Flixton, daughter of Walter and Harriet Upton. Walter was one of 14 children born to Albina and James Upton. I am desperately seeking to find a photograph of my mother, who died in 1951, as non exists. I made contact with the granddaughter of one of the 14 children who gave me masses of information but unfortunately no photograph. I have a group photo of the 'Uptons' but nobody knows who they were! In my quest I returned to Flixton 3 years ago for the first time in 60 years, having lived there during the war at Gleneagles Road. My only claim to fame is that I remember playing cricket for Davyhume Junior School against Urmston and we were all out for nought. It was even reported in the Manchester Evening News! By the way I thought the area had more than stood the test of time and if I was moving to Manchester I would be very happy to live there..
