Aspull Methodist School on a day trip to Windsor about 1954 or 1955. Some of these kids are probably Great Grandparents by now.
If you recognise anyone please say.

“The good old days” brilliant photo Dennis catching the excitement of the day ahead, though the lad at the front with his arms folded look a bit apprehensive.

What a brilliant photo. There appears to be 100's of kids there, not all of the camera toting Japenese tourists of today jostling you as they try to get the perfect photograph. I lived in Windsor for a year (1978) just down the road from the castle
