Great picture Brian, it was Jacqueline Catterall next to Christine Sudworth. Was it Gillian Woodcock? Looks like you've had it folded up in your pocket all these years LOL! I remember Mrs. Wilson very well.

Hi Whups, great photo I am Geoff & Shirley's sister too and you've really got me pondering you're identity, especially when you say you only lived 5 doors from us!! give us another clue ... can't ask our Geoff yet cos he's in Canada visiting his daughter

Well done Brian! Being a lowly 'Bryner' I'm not on the photo but my little Jenny was on it! Not seen her younger photos for a while as she had very few taken as a child. My wife Jenny died of Breast Cancer over 12 years ago now and both our son and daughter; and I still miss her very much!She never saw her grandchildren but would have been so proud! Does anyone have any memories of Jenny to share? Thanks Brian, you're a star! Eric Greenhalgh

The name Julie Colquitt brings back happy memories. I visited their house to service her mums sewing machine and Julie and I ended up dating for a while. Halcyon days!

I think this will have been 1960 or 61 .. Class 1 or 2 ... we had two teachers in Class 1 ... one of them was Mrs Wilson, Frank's Mum. She also took us in Class 2. We were all born in 1954 or 55.
