You would have stood there a long time yesterday, bus service to Cardiff due to maintenance over the weekend.

Hi "Pent"
I can remember "Sarge's" Great Danes.
His actual name was Des Warren.


We used to buy tripe from him to feed our great Danes.

No, Stoob, I did see the staff photo. Excellent. Dragon girl also liked it.  Thanks.
Arthur Handy (my second cousin) looking his usual grim self!
A very nice photo of Fan Evans, Miss James and Mrs Mounter. My life long interest in Latin came from Mrs Mounter who was a brilliant teacher. In her Christmas letter to me, Drac (Yvonne Roberts) said some nice things about Mrs Mounter - not least that she was a "thoroughly GOOD woman". Yvonne lives in Harrogate with her son and his family. She has very fond memories of the Grammar.
Do you know who the other women teachers in the photo are?
Anthony


There's a Miss Williams and Miss Phillips who taught Cookery and PT.
