  • Which one’s Robert Linstead? My friend Anna Roberts married a Bob Linstead, they met when we were very young.

  • I think I am the child on the right hand end of the bottom row, my name was Pauline Woodham, now Roberts.  I have an older sister called Valerie and an older brother named Ronald. We moved to West Yorkshire in 1954. I think the child sat next to me (second on the right, bottom row) is June Collier. We all lived on Upper Wellington Road. I would love to hear anything about June.

  • I went  to Elm Grove School in the 50s but do not remember this photo or the teacher, but think I can see myself in it. Were you Coral Parsons, if so we were friends at junior school.

  • Hi Pauline,

    What number in Upper Wellington Road did you live on? I lived on Upper Wellington quite recently.

  • I had Mrs Love as a teacher. I think Bob Linstead lived in Cobden Road, he later worked with my husband for Segas, now British Gas. I remember other teachers: Mrs Large, Miss Tutt or Tullet and the nurse/secretary/dinner lady Mrs White.

  • Someone I spoke to last night told me they recognised me from this photo! How long ago?  I am the Jill mentioned at the top of the page – was Jill Lassetter then. I remember a few faces and names.

  • Hey Jill Cash, formerly Lassetter 45 De Montfort Rd, right? I’ve been wondering what happened to you (and Sandy House). I live in Huddersfield now but was in Brighton in August and cycled past the Hare and Hounds where you once had a party! How you doing? Lynne (was Brewer)

  • Hi, my Auntie Carole is 70, she was fostered as a child by two sisters who lived off Elm Grove. My Aunt was sent to Elm Grove school for at least 5 years. Does anyone remembers her? Her name was Carole Lowrie.

  • Hi, I went to Elm Grove School in the 50’s. My name was Linda Matthews then and I had a twin brother Geoff. It looks like me in the photo second row right second to last.
