There is my old man!! Front row, 3rd from the left. Eric Cooke. I have this photo somewhere too!!
He wasn't the Lab Assistant at the TLS was he? Just reminds me of him.
Hi Tim and Ron, I was about to make the same comment as Ron. I went to Thomas Linacre from 1959 to 1963 and he certainly looks like the Lab Assistant which we had. Best regards to all former TLS students hope you are all well. I am enjoying a nice 20 week Winter break in Spain.
Hi Ron & Carl. Yes! He was a lab tech. He then went on to Cardinal Newman in Hindley and then to Whitley High School. He then finished off his working life for the metro as an audio/visual tech, going around all the schools fixing projectors, TV's, videos etc.
Sadly, Dad passed away this September after a long battle with prostate cancer aged 83.
Just found Eric at the end of the row on the 1958 Thomas Linacre School photo Part A. Stood next to the school caretaker.
I've found some of Dads old photos of his days at the Tech. I'll root them out and get them on here!!
