Maypole Dancing – 3

Our final offering with the Maypole dancers in 1981. Even the United buses were not allowed to disrupt the performance; turning round at the bottom of Grove Road! Marilyn Vodden advises: “I don’t know the names but I know my dad Charlie Vodden built the maypole out of a telegraph pole and I remember dancing round it” Only two pupils have been identified, centre front (blue jumper/shorts) Peter Hicks; whilst Tracey Sayers tells us: ”I think I’m in the brown coat and sandals, Tracey Money and my sister Diane is in the orange dress behind me. The teacher was Mrs Troughton.” Ann Jackson has added: “I remember Mrs Troughton she taught at Loftus (Rosecroft) school. We used to do May Pole dancing at Moorsholm school on May Queen pageant.” Andrea Foord has assisted with: “This photograph was taken at the May Day Maypole dancing in the Square in 1981. The children dancing were in the Nursery class with the teacher being Mrs Troughton. I am in the background holding my baby daughter Joanna; with my mother holding my eldest child Rebecca. The children would practice in the hall of the Nursery/ old school for weeks before and a May Queen would be chosen and crowned by a ‘dignitary’! I had taught the Infant class prior to Rebecca’s birth and later returned for 3 years as a part time teacher in 1983.”

Can anybody assist with other names?

Maypole Dancing – 2

A further image with the pupils from Skinningrove Primary dancing on what looks like a cool May morning. Timm’s Coffee House (before it was re-developed) in the background. We asked : ”Can anybody assist with names?”. Andrea Foord has informed us: ”This photograph was taken at the May Day Maypole dancing in the Square in 1981. The children dancing were in the Nursery class with the teacher being Mrs Troughton. I am in the background holding my baby daughter Joanna; with my mother holding my eldest child Rebecca. The children would practice in the hall of the Nursery/ old school for weeks before and a May Queen would be chosen and crowned by a ‘dignitary’! I had taught the Infant class prior to Rebecca’s birth and later returned for 3 years as a part-time teacher in 1983.

Maypole Dancing – 1

One of three images showing the pupils of the Nursery from Skinningrove Primary school, performing their maypole dancing in the Square. Pauline Warren tells us: ”Think the woman on the left is the nursery teacher Mrs Troughton.” Andrea Foord advises: “This photograph was taken at the May Day Maypole dancing in the Square in 1981. The children dancing were in the Nursery class with the teacher being Mrs Troughton. I am in the background holding my baby daughter Joanna; with my mother holding my eldest child Rebecca.

Carlin How School (1925)

This young lady looks rather shy to me, can anybody name her? A previous editor placed the following: ”The school looks like a Poor Law School with strict segregation of boys and girls.  Was it a symmetrical building with an entrance at each end?  I bet you had to queue to go in,  boys at one door and girls at the other, the classrooms aren’t segregated today though. How times have changed.” We think the comments from both Andrew Downs: “I don’t think it was a poor law school though, and segregated entrances were extremely common in schools of this period, look at any Victorian school , and you’ll see such writing above the doors!” and Bill Kitching: “I attended Carlin How junior school in 1926, and we did have separate entrances. We lined up in the cloakroom and marched into the hall where there were white spots painted on the floor. Miss Richardson played the piano and we lined up on the spots It was a hungry time in those days and we always had some one fainting – usually a girl. It was not a Poor Law school. It was lit by gas and it was quite something when the teacher climbed on a desk to light the gas lights. It was a lovely school with top class teachers. I owe all my success to the school and wish it well in the future”, sum up the situation very well! We apologise for this incorrect impression.

Carlin How Junior School – 1939

Although even the date on this photograph was questionable and was thought to possibly date from the 1930s, the two teachers can be identified as: Miss Ethel Adamson (later to be Mrs Bassindale) and Miss Pat Stanlake (later to be Mrs Fletcher). But many of the pupils named remain a mystery, so the Archive asked for help.

Derick Pearson tells: ”First pupil on the left middle row with the triangle was Charlie Hellings (junior); fourth from on left back row Walter ‘Taxi’ Goldby”. Jeanne Whitfield added: ”Back row, second from right ( white sweater/ hair bangs) is myself; Jean Dixon. To my left in the picture, by the teacher is a girl called Cynthia who lived on Queen Street. Sadly, she died of diphtheria shortly after this photograph was taken. Fourth from the right, middle row is Jennie Webster. Girl seated next to the girl standing with the baton is Margaret Dye. Girl sitting with her legs crossed is Mary Young. I’m not sure, but I think the girl above Mary Young is Mary Laverick, (now Fenby) and living in Australia. Also I think the girl next to the drummer is Betty Poritt. I was eight years old so the picture would be dated 1939. I hope this helps.”

Thanks to Derick Pearson for names and Jean Whitfield (nee Dixon) for names and probable dating of the image; also thanks to Eileen Clements for Miss Adamson’s correct name.
