Re: Charles Mapp MP.
Oldham Library has a small file of cuttings from local papers which have photos from near and after his retirement as an MP. Also a copy of his 1955 general election flyer which includes a photo plus one of his family. I have copies if anyone wants a copy.
Spent a number of happy days trawling through The Railway Clerk (The official organ of the Railway Clerk’s Association) and its successor (The Transport Salaried Staff Journal) wherein occasional individual and group photos. No copies but lots of notes made.
Interestingly when I checked local papers for results of all the local and national elections he contested no photos emerged.
