Gang of workers, Malsis Hall School I can only guess at year 1960, and I can only name my father John Eshton Davy second from left, front row.
Update from Brenda Whitaker: The chap in the front row on the left with curly (ginger) hair is my dad - Eric Harper from King Edward Street.
Update from Neil Palfreman: At the right hand of the photograph is Peter Dearnley, he lived by Glusburn bridge for a long time. If my memory serves me right, his parents lived in the lodge at the Malsis drive entrance to Malsis School.
Update from Tony Ingham: Front row, third from the left is George Kettlewell.

Update December 2016 from Charles Greenhough (Malsis 1956 to 1961):
The above photo is of the stage hands. I was 'Property Master' and am the boy in the back row second from left. The other boy in the back row is called Christopher Thom and Michael Holdsworth is sitting next to Mr Birdsall. The adult with the axe is definitely Mr West.
