All kinds of memories rekindled

editorial image

I ENCLOSE a photo from Rossmere Infant School dated June 1956.

My husband, Al Atkinson, is the boy marked with a cross on the second back row, left-hand side.

Unfortunately he cannot remember many names of the rest of the class.

The ones he is pretty sure about are: Back row, fourth from the left, Douglas Todd; third from right, Carol Goodhall.

Second back row, third from right Thomas Oliphant.

Hopefully your readers can fill in the rest.

We love your Memory Lane page. It stirs up all kinds of memories!


V Atkinson,

Bright Street,
