Anyone got any pictures of Joe Symonds, he is my Great Uncle, - brother to my Gran and was mayor I (think) in 1945 (ish)?

I seem to remember meeting him as a Kid he lived in the Houses at the top of Mallams Bank? heading up to Kirkstone Avenue, the ones on the right hand side looking down on the Farm.

he was one of 21 Kids the eldest emigrated to the USA in 1912 and so the youngest ones never met the oldest as he had left before they were born

Both he and my Grandad James Mills who I never met as he died in the 1950's were on the Jarrow March.
