People dance the night away at Standish Social Club in the late 1950s. Do you recognise anyone.

That's a great piece of social history. Kids enjoying themselves at the beginning of a new era in music and the age of the teenager begins.

Just caught a glimpse of the old Gramophone. Non of your twin decks or fancy stuff. Distinct lack of disco lights as well.

How old would you be back then tezza? Has nobody owned up to knowing anybody in the clip. Surely someone's mum dad or grandparents .
