George Formby who lived nearby at at 6 Westminster Street would say It's Turned Out Nice Again.


Comment by Harry C. on 17th January 2014 at 08:50
Mick, That was only yards away from where I lived in Turner Street, some people said that Ted Ray was also born close by there as well, but he was born in Great George Street.


Comment by Anne on 17th January 2014 at 09:46
Harry C. Can you remember the post office on the corner of Turner street in the 40/50s and who ran it?


Comment by A.W. on 17th January 2014 at 10:15
I photographed this building in 1988 it was semi derelict then. Nice to see it has been renovated.

Garry, go to the end of Sullivan Way which is off Greenough Street, you will come to Windsor Street where you will see St. George's. H.

John I went to St Georges early 50,s and also lived in Crawford Terrace, Mr Spencer was the headmaster a lovely man, with Miss Grundy and Mrs Taberner teaching English and Maths. The picture is of the side of the building, we went down there to go to playground at back of building


Comment by Mary K on 20th January 2014 at 12:34
The first door to the left of the van was the entrance to the dining hall,


Comment by Mr T on 23rd January 2014 at 21:25
Wonder how many of the Edlerly folk are here now who went to School here also. Must bring back memories for them!


Comment by Dave (USA) on 31st January 2014 at 20:32
Bill Spencer,Miss Tabener, Mrs Scally and Miss Smith were all wonderful influences. St George's was my primary school until I went to Wigan Grammar after 11 plus. I was there when St Stephens joined us until their new school was built. They kept us seperated at play time. We must have been animals.
