Circa1946. St. Mary's nursery class.
I am the only boy on the front row.
Others on the photo incude:
Frank Cheetham, Michael Kelly, Terrance Hyland, Bernard Dwyer, Geoff Lowe.
I believe that two of the teachers were:
Miss Christie and Mrs Monaghan but I am not sure.
Perhaps other people can add more names.

Many thanks for this, Alan. Yes, it is me on the middle row far left (or right depending on which way you look at it!). I was three years old, Alan, and this is probably the earliest photo of me (could be the only one!). Not one of us is smiling! Thanks again and all the best.

My mum recognises Josie Lawton but no one else. My mum ain't sure which one is her can anyone shed any light on this? Her name was Mary Waterworth.

I recognize Terence Hyland, we used to lead the altar boys on for a while as we were the smallest. John Siney is sitting next to him.
