Class photographs c1930s
My mother, Nellie Joyce Bampton, was born in Bristol Road, Brighton in December 1919. Soon after her family moved to Upper St James Street. My mother went to St Mary’s School in Mount Street & then to Varndean.
According to words on the reverse of the first photograph here, it shows the scholarship winners in 1930 at St Mary’s School. My mother, Nellie Joyce Bampton is seated middle front row probably aged about 10.
The second photograph states that it is the netball team at St Mary’s School around 1930. My mother is 3rd from left in the middle row. It would seem that the other two girls in the top photo were also in the netball team.
The final photograph states that is the Science 6th Form, Varndean in 1936. My mother is in the middle of the front row.
