Mr and Mrs Jo Bulloch. Her name is thought to have been Alice. He was a stevedore. They were the great grandparents of the donor of the photograph and lived in Westferry Road. His great-granddaughter remembers him waxing the ends of his mustache and twisting his kiss-curls into shape. ‘How he loved his pint of porter, he'd plunge the hot poker into it and it would fizz everywhere.' Donated by Mrs J. Jordan
