WAY_BACK_IN_TIME replied to Bulwell uncommon's topic in 70's NottinghamI worked at Laskys on Saturdays for a while and just thought about Luke Weiss as a story about Broadmarsh Center in the New York Times made me think about Notts. I was there in 1975 and part of 1976. We used to go to a pub across the way early for toasted sandwiches and beer early. Luke was a real character. He loaned his MG to Graham quite often. Fun to think back. Many names on your list took me back. Hank was a good mate. Blasting music from upstairs to sell speakers for their bass.
Becket School et al.
WAY_BACK_IN_TIME replied to mick2me's topic in All other Nottingham Schools DiscussionsI was at the Becket in the early 1970s. Engineer and others above got it pretty much right. Some adds and a few repeats: Mr. Harrington, Physics and a much younger Physics teacher whose name eludes me -- Mr. Moore? Fr. Aquinas wasn't the partially deaf Bio teacher it was another man... his name escapes me but he was bald, tall and I remember a nickname "Shiner" -- Mr. Mollison? Vic Taylor for history -- he left and went to Christ the King comp. Mr Rayner (short term) for history. Ken Fearon for Greek (and chess) Mick Turney for Latin Brian Quinn for
