Hi Nicky, I remember a Carol Robinson who attended St Pauls school with me in the 50s, so would be the right age. If you go onto the St Pauls school, Little Russell Street site, then to "the early days" Carol is in the class 4 photo, row behind those sitting, 4th from the right wearing a bib 'n brace style pinafore, next to the girl with light coloured bows in her hair. I think she is also in the other class photo on the back row but my eyes are not as good as they were. I do know she lived with her Mum in one of the "West Hill" roads off Buckingham Road for a long time and when I last saw her, about 1993 when I was over from Australia on holiday, was still in one of those streets after marrying and raising a family. Cheers
