I agree about 1956, going off the little girls' dresses and hair-ribbons. I remember having one of those japanese-style parasols from Woolworth's. A lovely photo.

The girl on the left looks like Jacqueline Danson; but the dates wrong
Girl next to her resembles Marilyn Hall

The girl on the left looks like Pamela Danson who I only met when she was 14 at Wigan Girls High School. She may have had a sister but they must have been the spitting image of each other.

Janet Danson,not sure,Christine? Derbyshire,Marilyn Wood & Kathleen Bretherton.

Pamela Danson must have had an older sister; Jacqueline went to the High School too - later was a teacher

Got married to Alec Simpson, then divorced from him and died of cancer later
My guess is that Jaquelin was born about 1938

Can anyone name the pupils on the other Poolstock photographs on Pages 1 and 2. Some of these girls could be on them.
I remember Pamela Danson very well from Poolstock.

Would these girls have been born about 1941 ?
