A Blast From The Past

On 4th March 1955, these pupils from Loftus County Modern School danced at Darlington, as the Northern Echo reported.

Back row: Terry Blades, Edwin Warrell, ??, ??, Barry Matson, Jimmy Fishlock.
Front row: Wendy Coxon, Anne Wilson, Sheila Mead, Anne Kilvington, Dorothy Hodge and Dorothy Rouse.
Now I have been reading about the sword dancers in some of the newspaper cutting loaned by Della and there was an exhibition in the County Modern School and one of the photos was from 1892 Loftus Sword Dance Team, does anyone have that photograph PLEASE?
