I crossed-paths at Christmas with a retired social worker who worked in that area and I am hoping the two of us and the necessary technology can get together in the near future and put together some more background.

It would be nice if someone recognises themselves! I was thinking that maybe those children wouldn't have had many photographs taken of themselves at that time but maybe we only recognise ourselves as children because our relatives were able to point us out in old photographs?
