Andrew Day who sent the Archive has memories this time: “I started at Guisborough Grammar School in January 1966 and was plonked in form 1 alpha. It was a bit of a baptism of fire for our family. We moved from Southend on Sea to Guisborough in that dreadful winter of 1966. I started at GGS and my sister one year my senior went to the Laurence Jackson School. We were ribbed mercilessly at first at school due largely I believe because of our southern accents. Still, as time moved on we grew to be accepted and our times in North Yorkshire became a very rich and rewarding time for us all, especially our mother who to the day she died, wanted to move back north.”

Towers School 1925

The Towers School, Saltburn 1925, for which the Archive is asking for assistance regarding this photograph. The image came to the Archive following comments to an image of the school dating c.1928. Peter Owen told the Archive: “Going through family archives, my mother (Marjorie Appleton) was at The Towers in 1925 at the age of 15 – this is the whole school photograph of that year. I would like to believe that her two sisters might also be in this photograph, Doris Appleton and Audrey Appleton. I put an arrow in the scan who I believe is my mother. Roger Byron-Collins has told the Archive: “My late mother in law, Svanhild Hojem was born in 1914 and was the daughter of a Norwegian business school owner in Stavanger and Arendal, attending Towers School in the 1920s.  There were a significant number of fellow students at the school from Norway and her best friend was the daughter of Christian Salvesen of the well-known transport company.” The Archive , as well as Peter and Roger would welcome any assistance in naming pupils or staff.

Loftus Junior School 1964

The third year class of Loftus Junior School, pictured in 1964, outside the entrance to Loftus Junior School. Are you on this photograph or can anybody assist with names? The Archive can only identify one pupil and Mr Philpot (his wife was the Librarian at Loftus Library for several years!). Janis Bonner believes: “I think this is later than 1964 probably more like 1968.This class was the year below me. I recognise some of these children.” Terry Shaw adds: “I believe this was 1968.” Terry has memories of Mr Philpot : “He was a good teacher but very strict, quite handy with the slipper, remember nice warm afternoons with him reading Swallows and Amazons.”

Upleatham Street School, Saltburn

Dating from July 1953; the pupils and Miss Norma Clay (Teacher) of the nine year olds class of Upleatham Infant and Junior School, Saltburn assembled for their class photograph. Alan Collins has memories of the schools: “This picture was taken in the courtyard front of the Junior School classes. The Infant School classes were at right angles to the right of this photograph, with a large lawned garden on the other side. This courtyard playground extended to a walled entrance to the left, which had a gate leading to Randolph Street, and opposite the rear of he classrooms facing Upleatham St  were some separately built toilets, next to a high perimeter wall.  This courtyard was the main playground area, and the infants had the lawned garden area facing south. A shop was on the corner of Lune Street, where we all went to buy sweets. I think it was run by Mr Harrison. In the winter we created a long ice slide down the middle of where there was a drainage channel, where water gathered and iced over in the winter; when we blocked the drain for that purpose. In the summer we used that channel to race our dinky cars.”  Alan can identify some people in the photograph; himself (middle of back row), others include: Alan Thompson, Jennifer ?, J. Hayward, Barry Thompson, J. Lince, D. Jones and J. Biscomb. Can anybody assist with names?
