Mr Un­der­wood’s class of ’58 brings back

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Looking Back -

THE two pho­to­graphs we pub­lished last week of Ful­bridge Road School have proved very pop­u­lar, with a num­ber of for­mer pupils get­ting in touch.

We only have space to re-print one pho­to­graph this week, we will pub­lish the other one again next week.

This week’s re-cap is of this pho­to­graph of Mr Un­der­wood’s class, 4a, when they were leav­ing the school in 1958.

An­gela Hinch­liffe wrote in to give us some more names of the pupils, as given to her by her sis­ter, Su­san Sturgeon, nee Gutteridge.

Mrs Sturgeon is the third per­son from the left in the third row down.

Mrs Hinch­cliffe wrote: “I also at­tended the school but was two years younger and won­dered if any­one re­mem­bers the head­mas­ter, Mr Bai­ley, giv­ing out to each pupil on their birth­day, one penny and al­low­ing them to leave school half an hour early.”

Thanks to Mrs Hinch­liffe and Mrs Sturgeon, we now have a pretty com­plete list of names.

In the back row, from left, are Ian Rollings, Brian Hib­bet, Mal­colm Wells, David Brown, Ian Hod­son, Robert Es­ling, Michael Oliver, Peter Flem­ming, Paul Skillings, and an un­known boy.

In the sec­ond row down, from left are Terry Cur­tis, Terry Barks, An­gela Lax­ton, Ruth ?, Felic­ity Bean, Mr Un­der­wood, Au­drey Woods, Jean West, an un­known girl, Richard ? and Vin­cent Pop­ple. This last chap is prov­ing to be a bit of stick­ing point, as June Churchill (nee Dan­dridge), who sent in the pho­to­graph, thought this chap was Vin­cent Pop­ple, Jen­nifer Ru­nacres, Karen Charles, Helen Asher and Su­san Al­cock.

In the next row down are Lynda Allen, Janet Be­van, Ali­son Mould, Rose­mary Wool­gar, Lynette Gud­geon, Jane Hud­son, Diane West, Su­san Swain and Jen­nifer Grainger.

In the front row are Viviene

Chal­lands, Carol Wright, Vivien Al­let, Les­ley Al­lis, June Dan­dridge, Trudy Bunting and Carol Al­lum.

Thank you to those who wrote in, we will pub­lish more feed­back next week. In the mean­time, if you can fill in the few gaps left, please get in touch us­ing the con­tact de­tails at the top of the page.

Vin­cent, but Mrs Sturgeon thinks an­other boy is him. Per­haps our read­ers can help solve the mys­tery of which boy is Vin­cent.

On the third row down are San­dra Jen­nings, Jen­nifer Stan­ley, Su­san Gutteridge, El­iz­a­beth Reynolds, an un­known boy, Richard Neal, a young man who may or may not be
