Thanks for the date Tony, that should help some of our visitors. :)

The bars were bent in the corner, you could squeeze through to get to the tuffee shop. They probably still are bent. I must go back and have a look.

I remember some of the kids on this photo. My year but not my form.

Tony Paine - you are extreme left on the middle row, next to the then undamaged Joseph Kehoe. Extreme right middle row is Joe Donegan (Woolmer Road).

I can also recognise Graham Glencross and John Rourke.

Of the girls - Diane Booth estreme right on front row. The twins - was their name Metherigham ?

I guess the class teacher was either Mr Attewell or Mr Griffin.

A long while ago.

Joseph Kehoe had quite severe facial injuries after falling on a mountain slope when we were on school trip to Bellinzona, Switzerland in 1959.

Very happy memories of TB school and the meadows.

Kind regards,
