Margrove School 1928

Margrove School 1928

From the days when every village had a school, this school photograph of Margrove Park in 1928 dates from that era. And we have:

Back row from left to right): Mr Mackenzie, Lewis Snowdon, Miss Parkinson, Mrs Wilson, Mrs Myers, Miss Sprintall, Dick Moorhouse, Phillip Sanderson.

Middle row: Les Wood, Tommy Handley, Peggy Franks, Pat Sanderson, Winnie Day, Hazel Thompson, David Teasdale, ??, Tommy Simpson, John Nicholson, Jack Baker, Joe Proud, Charlie Wrightson.

Front row: Jack Balls, Jack Teasdale, Arthur Balls, Frank Davison, Albert Franks, Leonard Albert, Claire Sanderson, Lillie Bennison, Frances Sayer, Lil Cottell.

As Derick Pearson tells us: “Lewis Snowdon later became Head at Skinningrove Secondary Modern School and later became Deputy Head at Loftus County Modern when it opened in 1963.”
