John McCurdy Hall as was, with Thomas Linacre School in the distance. JMH was opened by the Queen on Oct 21st 1954, as a 13 year old TLS pupil i was there, about 10 yards away from her as they drove through the gates in New Market St, the one and only time i have seen her in real life.

'Battye's Corner'.
I wonder how many people nowadays would know where that was, if you were to ask them?
