This appears to have been taken from the end of Leader St. Is it known what the year was when it was taken?

I've changed my mind :-)

It was taken from St Catherine's old school.

Photo taken from top of Chancery Street looking towards St. Catharines old school. The year would be approx. 1952.

Thanks Joyce. I could know some of those kids as I was brought up in the area and a few do look vaguely familiar.

Paul Yates, front left with hands held up?

Paul Yates is the one with his hands held up, his younger brother Ray is the one at the front on the right and Gordon another brother is at the back next to the lad with the bike. Joan Aspey(nee Rudd) is next to Gordon and Olga Loydd next to Joan. Ernie Morris and Stanley Mather are also on the photo.

You seem to have named then all Joyce, except the boy on the bike, any idea who he is. Did you live in Prescott's Yard.

Think the boy on the bike is Kevin Holt. My husband Ray came from Chancery Street. I came from Ince.

Joyce
The boy on the bike is Fred Holt not Kevin Holt

Despite my face being partially obscured I recognise myself. Lovely to remember old playmates. Regards to all. Olga
