Every now and again, we receive items that elude to the history of Abbey Road and its surroundings. 

We were more than grateful to obtain this wonderful photograph of a class of students with their teachers at South County School, (now West Bridgford Junior School) on Exchange Road from Keith who grew up on Abbey Road. The photograph is circa 1952.

Below is a list of the adults and children, some whom we believe to have passed away. However, you may remember the names yourself if you are of a certain age. 

On a personal note and having worked at West Bridgford Junior School for 25 years until I took early retirement, I can see that this photograph was taken on the back wall of the playground next to what I knew to be the P.E. shed on the right of the picture. It was recently made into a rather lovely classroom.
