    • This is an interesting picture from school, but the wrong age group :-)) I was at Robert Atkinson but left at about 1952 ? from class Commercial. Your comments all familiar, singing and Mrs Wilkinson, headmaster in his black gown etc. I was Betty Armstrong (now Betty McClure, married Harry McClure). Now very happy with family, including one great grand daughter. As you say all really good memories!
