any information about this photograph would be welcome

Ayresome Park

The caption on the ptotograph states
A close up of the crowd in the foreground of one of the grandstands at Ayresome Park.

The photo was thought to be at a football match.
although there are a lot of Warrenby faces pictured, and many of whom it would be surprising that they would be at a fotball match! but we could be wrong about that!
Another theory is!
they could have been attending and listening to the Family Prayer Rally of Father Peyton ? Father Peyton's slogan was

"The Family that Prays Together, Stays Together." - nowadays more often remembered than his name! The emphasis on family may be why families went as a group to hear him.

On 4th May 1952, 25,000 men, women and children crowded into Ayresome Park to hear Father Peyton.
(Evening Gazette Report of 5th May 1952
