The Booth Family

A Memory of Blackpool

My Grandfather and Grandmother were married in this church. My grandfather John Booth was a rock manufaturer - the Exhibition Rock Company in Gorton Street. I saw the lights being turned off in 1939 when the war broke out. My Father Ronald Monk had the first internal airline in the UK going from Blackpool to the Isle of Man and Liverpool. At the Isle of Man airport one can see the propellor from his seaplane. It was while doing this that he met my Mother Madeline Monk nee Booth.
