Class photo c1914

I believe the attached photo was taken at Carlton Hill School c.1914.

My mother, Daisy Watkins was born in 1909 and lived in Ivory Place, she is sitting in the second row from the front second left. My Aunt Edith is sitting on my mother’s immediate left and it is possible that Dick Gunn of Brighton Florist fame may also be in the picture.

I have only just acquired this image but recognised my mother immediately so maybe someone might just recognise one of their relatives. If you click on the image it will open in a new window, click again and it will show full size.

  • My father went to St John’s school in 1914. He would have been six years old so I wondered if he was in this photo. I know he also lived in William Street. His name was Albert Cornford.
