Further to Irene's query re the whereabouts of the Bluecoat School:-
'Then and Now' images using Ron's original photo, and a more recent one.
Only the Tudor House hotel and terrace houses in New Market St remain recognisable.
I hope you don't mind me using your photo, Ron.

I went to All Saints school(61 to 65), and remember us taking a lesson or two in the Bluecoat school, for some long forgotten reason?

These photos are not of the Bluecoat school in Hallgate, which I attended in 1940’s. Looks more like the Nuns home in New Market St.
