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. J. Champion has come to the Archives aid with: “My dad Bob Foster is pictured middles row extreme right.”
