Thank you to Richard Simcock for sending me this photograph.

1962

"I was interested to come across this web site which brought back so many memories.  I left James Clark school in 1962 and now live in Huddersfield.  I remember, some years ago, that a reunion had taken place for the years that I was there."

Questions

"Here is a photo of my class.  I am third from the right on the back row.  Does anybody remember who else is in the photo?  Are there going to be any more re-unions?"

More Pupils Identified

"I now know more of the pupils' names.  See below.  I hope this might start to jog some people's memories.

BACK ROW, 5th FROM LEFT:

This boy's dad was a fishmonger.  He once brought a full box of fish to harvest thanksgiving at the church at the top of Brown Street that the school used to use.

FRONT ROW, 3rd FROM LEFT:

This girl's first name was Gail.

-BACK ROW, 4th FROM RIGHT

I believe this was John Spence."
