    • Hi Mike.
      I’m the other Mike (Baker) back row, extreme right and I posted the picture. I’ve had a kind person give me a number of names and I keep promising myself that I’ll update the post. Now you’ve replied I will put it on my to do list ….honest but this retirement lark does get in the way of doing things.
      I now live near the Peak District in Derbyshire.
      Hope you’re well?


  1. I have the exact same pic! Faces are familiar-not all names. I (Mike Ross) am bottom right next to Chapman and Richardson on his right. Then Carr. I sat next to Peter Bell.


    • Hello Mike, good to see you on Picture Stockton. Just to say that I still have the 6 inch reflector that we made in your shed about 60 years ago. I last had it resilvered some 30 years ago, and the company was surprised that such an accurate mirror had been hand ground. A tribute to your precision.


      • Hi Mike, Hope you are well too. I am OK – managing to stay away from doctors plus walking and playing tennis. I have been in Canada for the last 54 years – 39 of them in Vancouver where I am now. I miss walking on the moors a lot.


      • Hi Cliff, Thanks for the flattery. I have a pic of me and this 8″ telescope but don’t know how to send it to you.


  2. Mike, I was in the same year at Grangefield as a number of boys in your class, and I think I can identify another one. The boy at the right hand end of the front row reminds me of Michael Ross, does that name ring any bells with you?


    • Too right Cliff it was Michael Ross. I think you and I were in the same form at Grangefield. Do you have any idea what happened to Maggie Davies, Jan Roberts and Cathy Watson?


  3. Just remembered Pauline Zucca had a younger sister called Jacki and I spotted her on a picture from Grangefield Girls School hockey team. They lived in Elmwood Grove not far from where I lived in Glaisdale Avenue. Would love to hear from them and my email address is with Stockton Archives.
