Although I went to Moss Lane in the early 50's some of the faces are familiar expecially Mrs Byron who taught English. Mr Rimmer was the Headmaster in the 50's. Would be lovely to see more photo's of the old school. There must be some out there, hopefully!

Hi Brenda. Only just seen your comment on this photo. I have left a comment on the other one. It seems ages since I first put the picture on and hardly anyone has responded. I think I remember you. Did you have at least one other sister? It would be nice to hear from anyone who was there when we were. I keep checking every now and then just to see if anyone else has made comment. All the best.

I just saw your posting Graham, my gt grandparents Beesley lived at your address from 1900's. Great Grandma Beesley died in 1941 but was living farther down Platt Bridge at the time.
