Hello Graham, Folly Lane School as it was called then was my first school (Infants) and I remember I had to go over the big (well it was to me) iron bridge. Used to frighten me when the steamers rolled under. We lived in Welland Road. One of my better memories was being able to buy liquorice wood from the nearby chemist. Must have been there around '45 just for a couple of years and then on to Moseley Ave. Wish I could remember the teachers but can't I am afraid. Wave I am sure Folly Lane has been mentioned before. Big grin

Graham 224. You mentioned Mr Thomas, he was the senior boys teacher, I was in his class, but the lady teacher you mention was Miss Lewis. Mr Thomas had nicotine stained fingernails, and a neat moustache.

Hi Graham, you won't believe this but I mentioned you and your brother to my wife as we passed your house in Gulson Rd the other day. I said the Balls lived there the Harritys here and then there were the Lambs and the Kemps. We all used Orton's shop or Lawrence's bakery - never forget their bread, I too was at Folly Lane same time, was it Miss Neguses class you were in as I was in Miss Lewis. Classmates were Alan Donnelly, Jack Mason, John Samuels, David Finch, Jimmy Martin, Rob And Marion Ray, Roy Twigger, Christine Finnemore to name a few. Great to see you are still alive and kicking. Best regards Brian
