Moulsecoomb in the 1950s
My name in 1953 was Sylvia Watts and I lived on Southall Avenue, Moulsecoomb. I remember Miss Carson was the very strict headmistress at Moulsecoomb School. Other teachers I remember are Miss Milledge, Miss Neate, Miss Holt, Miss Sharman, Mrs. Rutherford, Miss Smith, Miss Trist, and Mrs Caddick.
The Bates Estate
When I was at school the Bates Estate was full of apple trees. We used to pick the apples and they were so good to eat. I remember two Allen West factories; one at the top of Dewe Road and the other in Moulsecoomb.
Good old school days
As Moulsecoomb was an all girls school back then most of my pals were girls. Some of the names I recall are Jean Savage, Jean Owens, Brenda Lambert, Yvonne Tait, Olive Castle,Valerie Wingham, Maisie Castle and Marion Collins. I have lived in Canada for the past fifty years but often think back to my good old school days. I would love to hear from some of the people from way back then.
So if any of these names ring a bell with you, or you would like to share your memories, please do leave a comment below.
