Classroom activities c1958

It seems that while everyone has photos of their school classes posed as a group, there is a scarcity of classroom shots like this.

My wife, Jennifer Jones as she then was, is pictured here on the left, nearest the cupboard. The girl next to her on the left hand side of the table is one of the McCann sisters. The boy on the opposite side of the table is Adrian Sampson.

Are you one of the other children in this photo? Or can you recognise an old friend? If you can help identify any of the children, or have memories of this time, please leave a comment below.

  • Hi Graham – my husband remembers you from Coombe Road School – he is Jeffrey Dobson. Do you have any school class photos with him in – from 1959 – 1965? He can recall that Mrs Green was the headmistress.

  • Hi Graham
    Just wondered do you have any class photos from Coombe Road 1958 onwards?

  • This is, I think, Jackie McCann.
