Richmond Street Infant School

Photographs circa 1948/50

By Jackie Thomas/Parker Nee Jones

I went to the Richmond Street Infants School which was at the bottom of Sussex Street and Richmond Street. I seem to remember my mother taking me in an entrance in Richmond Street. When I first started I remember trailing around with a teacher, holding on to her apron, and crying for my Mum.

The first photograph is our Harvest Festival and was taken c1948/50. I am on the right hand side in the middle row with the Fair Isle cardigan and plaits. The second photograph was taken in the playground right next to caretaker's house and garden. I am second row from the back second in with plaits and a fringe.

Unfortunately I cannot remember any names. If you recognise yourself, or anyone else, or can share your memories of this time, please leave a comment below.
