No computers, no colour TVs no mobile phones, just to mention a few, but they were happy and content. School children then would look forward and be occupied with games like hopscotch, rounders, tennis, going to the park with mam and dad and being social. These important days seem to have gone..sadly.
Very nice photo of such innocent days.

I recognise the statue of the Sacred Heart in the corner he seemed to be in most Catholic schools. It wasn't unusual for children who misbehaved, that were told to leave the class and stand in front of the statue to reflect on their behaviour! I wonder if that still happens - probably not.

Just noticed the two nuns from Notre Dame Convent! They would make sure the school was kept open in winter. Another punishment was to stand behind the blackboard in class. It worked in my case as it was really embarrassing to have to do that!

No sign of your mum, Lisa. I lived next door in Lambton Street. My sister, Ingrid and your mum were best friends.
