  • Hi there I would just like to say that the three storey building in the background is the old flats of Balmoral close that backed on to Hurst drive school. They were demolished around 1979 to make way for Raglan Avenue. Many fond memories of these flats as I lived there for most of the 70s before moving to the newly built Springs estate in Turnford in 1978. Have a great dayđź‘Ť

  • Yes I recognise Alan and David Bloomfield.
    They were in the same year as me at St Mary’s high school between 59-63. Don’t recognise anyone else.
    Alan lived on Bury green estate like me.
    What happened to Alan, though not a friend as such I often wondered what he did after he left school. I recall he was a more mature than many of us.

  • The tall boy is definitely David Bloomfield. I was also at Secondary school with Alan (Algy) Woodards but can’t say I recognise any others. The blond boy at front right might be John Luckett and the boy with jacket on right could be Brian Anderson.
