St James' Road CP School, Orrell, 1959 Scholarship class, 50+ pupils too, and no teaching assistant. Mrs Cadman coped brilliantly!

There must be family of mine on this photo as my father was born in Withington Lane 1907 he was the yougest child so he could be on this photo also some brothers or sisters that were older its a pity no names and I cant pick anybody out as I have no photos by the way there name was Smith and they lived at 70 Withington Lane (no longer there).
