This photo was posted by nopa1000 some time ago. I straightened it up with the intention of putting it back on at the time, but it somehow went missing. Now it’s turned up again from the murky depths of my disorganized computer along with another one that I think was posted by Veronica, so I am posting them now.

Reminds me of the TV series 7 Up

Great picture, and have you noticed: none of them look stressed out, or 'pouty'

Dtease, I remember a lot of these kids from when I was at this school, albeit a few years later. In fact, I would say these kids are now somewhere between 75 - 80 years old. Mr Thomas would have been the headmaster at this time, Mrs Dickson would have been teaching the infants, then there was Mr Owen, Mrs Stott and perhaps Mr Cadman, ah yes, I remember them well !. Great picture.
