  1. Pleased to see this photograph as I worked on erecting the shuttering for this wall when I was an apprentice joiner with Stockton Council. Not altogether sure of the exact year but believe it may have been between 1959/1961.
    Although the formwork was a proprietary metal column and clip-in pan system, it was the joiners responsibility to erect, align and brace the system in place prior to the placing of the concrete. This was carried out in several lifts.


  2. I remember this being finished in the early 1960’s if not late 50’s – Yes it is the Nursery where I went as a child. Well I wouldn’t go as an adult would I?


  3. This was when they widened the road and that is the Nursery building at Norton High Street School. I left NHS in 1959 but I can’t remember if this widening was completed by then.
