Great photo Ray. Sorry I don't remember you but my little brother Ronnie could be the second from the right, front row and David Hopper, my fishing buddy, is second from left, front row.

Hi Fred, - I think we will have come across each other at some time. We used to live only around the corner from you ( Fleet St. )and I called round a few times for Ronnie.

Mick, John Cramer is not on this photo. He is older than these kids and is on the other two photos stood in the middle at the back.

Ah, those were the days. Going fishing as teenagers to the Lancaster Canal and the River Weaver in Cheshire with shotguns..!! David knows what I mean. His father took us in the van. Wonderful times....

I started St. Johns 12 months after this photo but remember the Mason brothers. Are you the Raymond Armstrong who had relations in Alder Avenue, I spent my early years at No.27 we lived with my Grandma. Was very happy at St Johns,even with Miss Phythian and Mr Starkey

Hello, I certainly remember Mrs. Lowe and David Hopper, and suspect I am one of the dark haired boys in the front row.

Ive still got this photo - My grand-daughter has just started in the nursery class - old Mrs Redfern's class-room, it brings back memories - glad to see the 'old outside toilets' are long gone. Its good to see some of you occassionally i.e. Ronnie Mason and David Hopper.

re:- comment from Derek Callaghan ( Cally),sorry I haven't replied to your enquiry sooner but I've only just picked up the thread.
Anyway you are right about having relatives in Alder Ave. they were my maternal grandmother,grandfather and uncle and they lived at no.17
Extremely fond and cherished memories of visiting them in my formative years.
Also remember Ann Barton who lived a couple of doors down- could be no.21 or so
