Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 14th January, 2020)
Such memories! Wonder what's to happen with the site? Presumably the wall has been left in place to stop travellers setting up camp.
I used to love the look of that little school with its warm red bricks. On passing it as the nights drew in and the classroom lights were on, it always looked cosy and homely and I imagined the little children inside happy at their lessons. The teacher who taught me in what we used to call The Babies' Class at Ince Central School went on to teach at Britannia Bridge and told me of one little pupil who thought it was called "Pretend You're A Bridge" school!
I love listening to toddlers and what they think Irene. We had a few hilarious musings on Christmas Eve when the Priest asked them what present would they buy the Baby Jesus.... One said "A wristwatch" another said "Some new clothes" and another thoughtful child said, " A phone" ...
I would call them gypsies, Anne.
Spring View Secondary Modern had classes there, woodwork for the boys and domestic science for the girls. living in Lower Ince... we had hours of fun on the Nursery Field, which was at the back of Britannia Bridge School. A good photo Brian that brings back many happy memories. Your Grandma also went to this school.
Some Gypsies may be travellers - but not all travellers are Gypsies.
It had to come down because in was old fashioned and damp.
I'm old fashioned and sometimes damp but hope I don't need to come down for quite a while yet :-(
Well said, Anne. I love old schools.
Anne do you not use them Tena Ladies things ? they are suppose to help according to the telly adverts.
Not that kind of damp Mick, a little hot and sweaty at times. Or, as a gentleman once said many years ago "ladies don't sweat, they gently perspire" :-(0
Mick, you know what it can be like in Singapore.
"Parliament St", may be a sign of what is to come in London!
I know what you mean Anne, when I was a bit younger I use to make plenty of them gently perspire in that region.
