Those buildings in the trees at the top right corner, were they once the labour exchange ( or something like that).

KenR, I hink you're referring to "The Huts" (tax office)on Bridgeman Terrace, which was opposite the top righthand corner of the playing field, not on the pic.
Where the trees are is a dentist surgery & private houses. there was a small grandstand there in years gone by

I remember that dentist well,I had a filling there then went and got Lynne the dental assistant to ring up for my GCSE results from school...TLS... what a crap morning that was .
Where the boy is standing with his raised arm is the position of the long/ triple jump pit during athletics meetings at TLS.
And the square brick building that used to stand in the far corner was a squash court as I rememeber

The building in the corner used to be a fives court, some weird sport the Grammar school lads used to play.
