Thanks for the school photos. I was very pleased with the Salisbury Road one because that is the first time I've ever seen the outside of the Scots Presbyterian chapel (if only a bit and in the background) on Balfour Road. It was a bomb site when I knew it and we used to play in the rubble. That was before I knew that it was the church that my nan and mum went to before the war. If anyone has a better picture of the chapel, I'd very much like to see it.
