Apart from remembering Fred Hardman, the pic was taken before my time. I don't know any of the lads there.

Fred Hardman, the teacher, headmaster, died a couple of years ago, he was 91. I often used to see him walking along Atherton Road in Hindley Green. Often, while teaching the class, he was smoking (terrible isn't it :D) Undeniably, he was a very educated chap. Some folks thought he had favourites, I didn't, but I think he had a preference for established families in the area. I could never get my head round his version of un-equal division.
