Parsons Green

This looks like a happy class!  Thank you to Bill Gall for sending the photo to me.  The photo was taken in 1948-49 and the teacher was Mis Sinclair.

1948-49

"I am on the left of the second row.  I think that the girl standing in front of me, on the front row, is Barbara Bachop.  Our teacher was Miss Sinclair.

It would be interesting to know where all the pupils are now."

School Fire

"The school was at Lily Hill Terrace.  It went on fire in 1958.  I remember seeing the bell tower falling during the fire, from my house at our top flat in Meadowbank Crescent.

It was quit sad to see, as it had been a big part of my life.

There have been houses on the site for a long time now."

School Fire

"I attended Parsons Green School in Edinburgh.  Mairi Macnab and I were the top boy and girl. Our teacher was Mr. Mowatt.

We were taken out to a posh lunch and chose a radiogram for a departing headmaster.  I have a school photo, and am sure Mairi will be in it. 

I left Parsons Green, went to Broughton.  I did National Service. spent 40 years in Immigration Service, and now spend my time in West Sussex , gardening and ferrying grandchildren around."

John Bey

Headmaster

"My grandfather John Bey was, I think, headmaster of Parsons Green School.  He died in 1943.  Might anyone remember him?"

"I remember the Headmaster, John Bey, at Parsons Green Primary school.  I have nothing but good memories of him.  I was one of the last folk to speak to him before he was found dead at his desk that morning.

When I read the request above, I tried sending an email to Tricia Bey to tell her what I knew about her grandfather.  Unfortunately, I got no response from her.  Perhaps she is no longer using the email address that I sent my email to."

Before moving to Australia, Elizabeth lived at Meadowbank Crescent, Edinburgh.
She remembers the sheep and the quarter-mile sledge run in Holyrood Park, nearby.

Message for Tricia Bey

Please email me.

I'm sorry to hear that Elizabeth Bell failed to get a reply from Tricia Bey.

If you read this, Tricia, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on your email address to Elizabeth, so that she can try to contact you again.
