Church Sunday School c1950s

By Marion Baldwin/Upton

I went to the Sunday School in Goldstone Road/Clarendon Villas in the early 1950s.  I am not sure, but it might have been called 'The Mission'.  This photo shows a Sunday School outing.  I am directly behind the man sitting in the front row; I have a white collar.  I would love to know if this photo brings back memories for anyone.  Maybe someone can recognise themselves here?

The man is Mr. Gosling (he was blind), in the same row the first girl on the left is my sister Julie Cording, last girl on the right is my sister Mary Cording, second row down fourth from right my cousin Rosemary Wilton. Mary thinks she still has this photo and will see if she can name any others, she has not seen this as she is not on the net but could remember it when I told her about it on the phone.

I remember going to the Mission for a while. You lived at 35 Clarendon Villas in the garden flat and me, my two brothers and sister lived at No.39. I am Ian Luckhurst and my brother is Keith. I remember you had a garden and you, myself and my brother built a camp, or you had a tent in your garden. We spent an afternoon eating biscuits and drinking orange. Nice memory.

The attractive Clarendon Mission building is still there today, in Clarendon Villas on the south west corner of Goldstone Street. It is now the Church of Christ the King.
