Thank you to the many people who have sent me copies of their old school photos.

-  In some cases they have named most of the people in the photos.

-  In other cases, they have sent their memories of the school.

Here are a few of the photos.  I found it interesting to see how the fashions changed over the years and from school to school.

Please let me know if you recognise yourself or anybody else in any of these photos.
