CONTINUING the theme of school day memories, Joe Butler has shared with me this picture of Grange Park Secondary Technical School.

It shows form 2T in 1953.

He wrote: “It would also be fascinating to find out if they know the whereabouts of the individuals in the picture, as we were all part of the first intake into the secondary technical school when it changed from being a secondary modern. At the time secondary technical schools were an innovation.

“I’m pictured (third row, second from the right) and have recently been contacted by one of the other pupils (who now lives abroad). Both of us would like to contact others, if possible.I believe the listing is correct because it was written on the reverse of the photo at the time it was taken. Any help through you would be greatly appreciated.”
