ariel picture of John Rigby I think that it is in the mid to late 70' as the sports hall has not been built.

I would guess the late 1940's. I attended the Bluecoat Primary School and I remeber walking home past Bull Hey (the field opposite the Grammar School) I moved to the recently built Thomas Linacre in 1953 as a 10 year old. What a fantastic photograph!!!
