The School Library

Here, a group from the Upper 6th Form gathers around a 'story reader' in the School Library, around 1962-3.  Can anybody help me to identify who is in this photo.

-   Furthest from the camera in the middle of the picture is Jim Harrison from Birstall.

Thank you to John O'Donnell, Paris, France, for helping to identify the people above:  Nov 14, 2008.

Thank you to Richard Hodgson who wrote:

"I attended St Bede's from 1956-63, in 1A to 5 alpha, Lower 6, Upper 6.  I can put names to 3 of the boys in this photo.  They are:

Richard Hodgson (myself), the story reader in this photo.

Gerard Ellis, Skipton, behind me (head down)

Alexander ('Vince') Winiarski, Bradford, behind me (full face).

The only boy that I can't name in this photo is the one on the far right.  I can't recall the occasion, but it must surely have been specially posed for the camera, as it is such an unlikely scenario.  I am fairly sure that it is earlier than the 6th form. I would say 5 alpha, ie 1960-61"

Posed Photos?

Yes Richard, as I recall, everybody was already in the Library having a chat one lunchtime, when I came in with my camera.  They re-composed themselves without any prompting on my part!

By contrast, not a lot of posing went into this shot.  It was just a brief stop on a winter's walk for a chat and a smoke! - possibly somewhere along the cross country course.

Philip Buckle

"My father, Philip Buckle, was a young schoolteacher at St Bede's from 1961.  He died last year, aged 84.

I was looking on the internet for an article that my father wrote with Ron Elwood, another St Bede's teacher, when I came across this photo taken in the school library:

My Photos -  St Bede's Grammar School  -  Library  -  1962-63 ©

When I first saw the photo, I was sure that he story teller was my father, rather than one of the boys:

-  the way he held his finger while reading the book

-  the mop of hair

-  the glasses

-  and, very much, the tweed.

However, I see that you have already received a reply from somebody identifying themselves as the story teller."

Do you remember the teacher, Philip Buckle?  If you'd like to send a message to his daughter, Elizabeth, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on Elizabeth's email address to you.

Thank you.

"Did Philip Buckle teach Latin and Greek?  If so, I remember him.

I attended St Bede's .  I think that the years that I attended were 1959 to 1964."
