Stanford Road Infants, c.1951/52
From the private collection of Kenneth Ankers

This is the first class photo I have from Stanford Road Infants.
I do remember some of the faces so here goes. from the back.
Back Row, ?, John Caiger, ??????
Second Row, ?? John Morris, Ken Goddard, ??????
Third Row, ?? Ken Ankers (Me), ???, Ian Brown, Chris Tidy, ?
Front Row Seated, ? Glyn Parry, ???Gwyneth Evans, Ann (not sure of Surname) ?

When I left Stanford Road in 1958 I went to Fawcett (dreadful School), I lost contact with most of my Junior school friends, I did, however, join the YMCA in Brighton when I was 16 and after all this time we still keep in contact and meet up in the Lanes for a meal 4 or 5 times a year.

Can any of you fill in the missing names???
Good Luck,

  • Hi Ken
    I was at Stanford Road Infants a couple of years later than you and I too went to that dreadful place ‘Fawcett’.
    However,did you live in St Michaels Place at this time? If so I think we were acquainted as I was in Powis Road and we backed on to each other.
    Small world eh?

  • Hi to Ken Gray,
    Yes guilty as charged.
    I was unlucky enough to spend my first 21 years in St Michaels Place (what a dump).
    I was so lucky however to to be employed as a trainee manager with H Samuel in Worthing (I would not have stood a chance with my address in the Brighton Branch)
    and within a year I moved to Hastings with the company,
    plus a number of promotions and moves finally moving companies when I was Manager at Paragon Jewellers , Oxford,(was part of HS. and now closed).
    I now live in Chichester with my second wife (lucky me).
    I wonder how many of the children in my photo are still with us?,
