Nice photo. My wife Betty went to this school and has lots of happy memories.
A very substantial building, nice photo Harry. My mother went to school here, she left in July 1925 aged 14.
Cleaned up nicely,didn't it?Was a great school.
I visited there once when my sisiter in law was looking at care homes. I didn't see anything nice about it
George Formby who lived nearby at at 6 Westminster Street would say It's Turned Out Nice Again.
Mick, That was only yards away from where I lived in Turner Street, some people said that Ted Ray was also born close by there as well, but he was born in Great George Street.
Harry C. Can you remember the post office on the corner of Turner street in the 40/50s and who ran it?
I photographed this building in 1988 it was semi derelict then. Nice to see it has been renovated.
The chap who ran the post office for many years commited suicide on railway line Gidlow area,
Anne, I remember the post office but not who ran it.
My question is this WHERE is this place??
Garry, go to the end of Sullivan Way which is off Greenough Street, you will come to Windsor Street where you will see St. George's. H.
My Dad went to that school in the 20's Frank Banks who lived in Crawford Terrace.
My husband went to St George's in the late 50s, early 60s and has find memories
Lovely building....lovely photo.
I remember a mr.Atwell ran the post office.
John I went to St Georges early 50,s and also lived in Crawford Terrace, Mr Spencer was the headmaster a lovely man, with Miss Grundy and Mrs Taberner teaching English and Maths. The picture is of the side of the building, we went down there to go to playground at back of building
The first door to the left of the van was the entrance to the dining hall,
Wonder how many of the Edlerly folk are here now who went to School here also. Must bring back memories for them!
Bill Spencer,Miss Tabener, Mrs Scally and Miss Smith were all wonderful influences. St George's was my primary school until I went to Wigan Grammar after 11 plus. I was there when St Stephens joined us until their new school was built. They kept us seperated at play time. We must have been animals.
