Halesowen Grammar School

Postby Maths girl » Sun Feb 07, 2010 8:19 am

So as we know Rob was at school in Oldbury.

Just wondering whether anyone was at Halesowen Grammar School in the 1930's/1940's and would remember my mother or my uncle?

My Mom was there MG from about 1937/8 to about 1943/44, also my Aunt the same time. I remember Mrs Bell the Senior Mistress from that time period, she was a friend of my Nan's and used to come for tea. Linell.

Thanks for uploading that San, I have the orginal copy somewhere with all the names on the back! My Mom is first on the right bottom row. Two of the girls were Downings, their father was the Mayor of Halesowen. Think one of the others was Pat Roberts. The picture was taken in my Grandparents back garden circa 1943, the girls had performed a Concert to raise money for the Spitfire Fund. Linell.

Thanks for trying Julian, sorry been off line for a couple of days. Maybe our resident artisan 'Mallosa Bailey' can re-size them :?: :?:

Much appreciate both your efforts from Linell.
