Neighbour's in and around John St partying in The old boys' School playground. Just before my time but I do recognise quite a few people. The lady on the end ( right) was Mrs Baron who lived next door to us.

I remember Mrs Baron and Joe living next door to us for many years. When we had school dinners in the canteen she would always give us second helpings! They were such nice people. They lived at 38 and we lived at .40.
