I am not exactly sure of the date of these photographs but I think they are c1928 and 1929. My mother, who was Edna Parker then, is front left on both the photographs. She lived in Sandgate Road.
My mother won a scholarship to Varndean School, but unfortunately her father died in about 1934 and my grandmother was wheelchair bound with arthiritis so my mother, Edna, had to finish her education at Balfour Road School before entering employment at 13 or 14.
If anyone can identify any of the other children in these photographs, please do leave a comment below.
