The class group was leant to me today by Barry
Gillmore. He was the year below me.
It is taken at Purrett Road School
From 1946 to 1951 I
lived in a Prefab on Winns Common with my
parents Bill and May Humphrey, and my brother
Mick Humphrey who was five years older than
me. For three of those years I attended Purret
Road Infant School and here is a photo of my
class in 1950. I am on the left hand end
of the middle row wearing a striped cardigan.
I went back to see the school some years later
and was astonished how small it was, when I
was there it appeared enormous. I remember no
names in that class but was wondering if
anyone recognises themselves, or a parent or
even a Grandparent!! Terry Humphrey
