This is worth researching. I lived not too far away and I never knew there was a school on the corner of Spencer st. When did it close down, do you know?

Hi Lyn yes it’s lovely to see it again, she will be pleased and will get it printed. I remember the school well, Susan was 11 and I was 9 when it closed. She went to Camden Street girls and I went to the junior school there.
