Old school pho­tos are jog­ging your mem­o­ries

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Looking Back -

THIS week we’re hav­ing a bit of a re-cap in Look­ing Back as we’ve had a lot of feed­back on our re­cent pho­to­graphs.

First of all, thanks to Pa­tri­cia Moulds from Stan­ground, we now have the names of this group of adults taken at Old Flet­ton Pri­mary School (above), which we first pub­lished on Satur­day, May 29.

Mrs Moulds worked at the school for more than 20 years as a teacher’s as­sis­tant, so was able to recog­nise many of the other staff mem­bers.

The gen­tle­man to the left is Bob Turner, who later be­came the school’s head teacher.

Work­ing from left along the back row from Mr Turner are Mrs Hall, Miss Ward, Miss Seaton, Mrs White, an un­known lady and then Mrs Dunkerley.

In the front row, the lady in the dark skirt suit is Miss Faulkner, the head­mistress, and next to her is Mrs John­son.

If you know the name of the fi­nal lady, please get in touch with Han­nah Gray.

Our sec­ond lot of feed­back is about Ful­bridge Road School, and the pho­to­graphs sent in by June Churchill, nee Dan­dridge.

We pub­lished some in­for­ma­tion last week but didn’t have enough space for it all, so this week, as promised, we have some more.

Felicty Benton, nee Bean, got in touch about this pho­to­graph of Mr Un­der­wood’s class, 4A, as they pre­pared to leave the school in 1958.

Mrs Benton wrote: “I’ve just seen via the in­ter­net the photo of Ful­bridge Road School in 1958.

“I am Felic­ity Bean on the left of the teacher, Mr Un­der­wood. He was our teacher for two years and was very pop­u­lar.

“We kept in touch with him even af­ter we left but he went to live in Rick­mansworth and be­came a head teacher.

“I be­came a teacher my­self and re­alised how far ahead of his time he was when he taught us.

“He got mar­ried one year but could only have two of the class at his wed­ding. I re­mem­ber I was very dis­ap­pointed not to have been one of the cho­sen ones.

“My old­est friend, Ali­son Mould, is on the photo and we are reg­u­larly in touch.

“I would love to hear from any­one else in the class at felice.ben@ gmail.com. I now live in Suf­folk hav­ing been in Peter­bor­ough most of my life.”

An­other reader, Wendy Al­lett, Pratt, got in touch about the pic­tures of run­ners from Ful­bridge Road School in 1956.

She said: “I was rather sur­prised to see my photo in last night’s ET. am Wendy Pratt, the un­known girl on the front row be­tween Jen­nifer Ru­nacre and Carol Ladd.

“I am sorry I don’t recog­nise any of the oth­ers, I think the sec­ond un­known girl on the front row might be Mar­got Parker but I am not sure.”

Fi­nally, June Churchill has been so de­lighted with the re­sponse to pho­to­graphs that she’d very much like to hear from her for­mer a school friends, with a view to set­ting up re­union.

If you are one of those pic­tured would like to get in touch, call her 01733 560175.
