As you can see there is only one name not known, it may be that somebody may know this young lady…

  1. Good day Mr Coleman,

    The young lady you couldn’t name is my next door neighbour’s elder sister Ann Cragg’s also in the picture Olive Buckley lives in Norton and my sister Margorie Wood sadly she passed away 15 years ago. If you need any info about any of the other people I’m afraid all my knowledge is from the era up to the mid sixty’s and is very limited.

    Regards
    Peter Wood

  2. I can be quite specific as to the location of this photograph. It was taken at Billingham C of E school as you say, which was located in Chapel Road opposite nos 44/46. I should know, I lived in 44 and also attended this school from 1949 to 1951. I have a photo taken in exactly the same spot (which has already been published on Picture Stockton) but with Miss Liverseed in attendance. She was headmistress. Hope this is of some use.
