1979 General Election - Rochdale constituency - John Tyndall speaks.
This old picture was almost accidentally destroyed today. So I am putting it on here to save the image for posterity.
This was the build up to the 1979 General Election when the National Front stood in over 300 Parliamentary constituencies. Rochdale was one of the parliamentary seats fought.
The speakers are from the left;
Mike Cowley (?) Regional Officer for the North West NF.
John Tyndall, standing and speaking,Chairman of the National Front.
Peter Barker, Chairman of the meeting, Rochdale Organiser and Agent for the Rochdale candidate.
David Riley, North West NF Regional Organiser.
Harry Barker, Secretary of Rochdale NF, and acting secretary for the meeting.
The meeting was held in a local hall on Sandy Lane, Rochdale. Which has since been knocked down. It stood opposite the entrance gates of Spotland Stadium. Over 100 people attended the meeting on a wet dreary evening in Winter.
