Putting names to faces during enjoyable times
READERS got in touch after we published photographs of staff parties that were held at the Ship Hotel in Flottergate, Grimsby.
Angela Brumsby told us: "The lady standing in the centre at the back with blonde hair is my late mother, Marion Brown, who was a barmaid at the hotel. She loved working there."
Sheila Sherriff said: "I am on one of the photographs. I worked in the cocktail bar at the Ship Hotel for four or five years in the early 1960s".
Irene Ellis, of Penshurst Road, Cleethorpes, identified her mum, Mrs Marjorie Johnson, on one of the photographs. Marjorie was a chambermaid at the Ship for many years.

June Wrightham spotted her mother-in-law, Ivy Wrightham, on a couple of the pictures. Ivy started work at the Ship in the 1950s as a cloakroom attendant and went on to be a barmaid. June told us that Ivy was very well-known by staff and customers alike.
And Mr Ambridge, of Darwin Court, Grimsby, said: "I was employed at the Ship Hotel between 1965 and 1969. I started as a page boy, then I was a dining room waiter before becoming a barman.
"I am on one of the photographs, at the back, holding the hand of the lady in white.
"The person on my left is Wilf and to his left is Margaret, who was the cook.
"On the same photograph, front right, the girl sat on someone's knee is Lesley, the daughter of Mr and Mrs Thompson, who ran the Ship. To Mr and Mrs Thompson's left is Gladys and behind her is Jess (the lady in white) who was a waitress.
"At the back, I believe that second from left is Jack, who was a porter. I hope this helps to put a few names to the faces.
"The time I spent at the Ship was very enjoyable and I made a few good friends there.
"Mr and Mrs Thompson were a delightful couple to work for and I was fortunate to meet up with Mr Thompson a few years ago before he died. Good and happy days indeed."
