 Springfield Primary School  1954        11-12yr olds      (1954c)

 

Feb.2007,  Class photograph sent by Jim McDonald's sister Bab's.  Extract from Bab's letter....
"...Jim went on to Rivvy and when he left school he worked in the Co-op in Nuneaton St for a while. He went to London when he was 18 yrs old and he is now settled in Devon. The family lived in Mordaunt Street in a single-end, there was six weans and my Ma & Da, Jimmy & Barbara McDonald.  My Da died in 1977 but my mother still lives in Brigton, I don't think she could ever leave.
I think your website is brilliant it brings back so many memories......
