    Stephen, the two buildings on the field are my old school were i lernt to reed and right proper the feint hut on the left was the infants the hut on the right was the junior school . This was St Lukes school until the mid 1950s when the new buildings were completed They were just two long wooden huts divided inside into four classroms by small screens, so you could catch up on things you missed last year and preview next year by listening to the teacher next door , magic sorry i dont know if it was ever the club i certainly dont remember it as sutch

    I seem to recognise the corner shop on the extreme right of the photo over the road, but does anyone know what the building is in the background above the bloke in the pony and trap ? it looks like a church maybe ? totally agree about Lyons pies they have never been beat as far as i am concerned.
