Eastville Junior Mixed School/ Combe Road School 1954

I was "Googled" by a Bristol, U.K. man who was interested in my memories of Eastville Junior Mixed School, a.k.a. Combe Road School. He put me on to a Combe Road School website,

I'll share some items from the Combe Road School site tomorrow. But in the meantime, here is a picture which I've had since 1954, which I scanned earlier today.

It's a picture of the Eastville Junior Mixed School Choir. In the centre l-r is Mr. Ken Lewis,Headmaster; Mrs. Richards, Pianist; and Class teacher and Choir director Mr. Sid Richards.

The photo' was taken in nearby Eastville Park.

See if you can spot me!
