Littleworth Junior School ~ Class 4a ~ 1948/1949 ~ above
Class 3a Littleworth School 1947, this was our school trip, going to Rockley for the day, fishing for tiddlers and a very happy day it was too. Our teacger was Miss Mosby, she was a lovely lady. It is difficult to name everyone, to the left is Joan Milburn, sticking her fishing rod into the ground. Geoffrey Wainwright is the first left holding a jam jar, others are Betty Beachill, Edna Robinson, Christine Atherton, Douglas Cook, Alan Bennett, Pat Hutchinson, Graham Bessant, Anne Wolstenholme, she is between me (eating) and my life long friend, Pam Thorpe (now Fisher)
Littleworth Junior School - 1949. Every year there was a festival held at the Alhambra in which local schools took part. Our school had a production of "Bluebeard". I was a slave girl (the story of my life).
The names are not in order, have been provided by my friend Pam Fisher (Thorpe)
Mavis Shepherd, Margaret Holland, Leslie Darren, Betty Jepson, Geoffrey Sidebottom, Frances Pashley, Mary Feeley (arrow) Pam Thorpe, Barry Grice, Marlene Hunter, Barry Swann, Geoffrey Wainwright, Connie Hirst, Anne Wolstenholme and Barry Hobson. The lad sitting on the chair is Barrymore Bates (he played "Bluebeard")
The above photo was kindly sent to me by Trevor Brown, it is the cricket team of Littleworth School, taken around the same time as the photograph above. Trevor is standing between Mr Sykes the Headmaster and Mr Eagle, I also recognise Bobby Kent, sitting next to Dennis Clay who is wearing the cricket pads.
If you recognise anyone else in the photograph, I should be very grateful if you would send me the names.
Barnsley Girls' High School.
Thank you to the person who kindly sent me the photograph below, I understand it was taken in the late 1940's. I started BGHS in 1950. I recognise Miss Baldwin, the Headmistress. Constance Dorothy Mary Baldwin, to give her, her full name, a very nice lady she was too, I have often wondered what happened to her.

Dear Mary. Really enjoyed your web site. Being born in Cudworth in 1931 the photos brought back a lot of memories.I have only one photo of my time at Barnsley grammar school. Remove4 in 1946, unfortunately, moving from the area I dont have any names to add. Prior to this I was at Littleworth and being during the war, my main recollection is drawing posters etc to raise funds to buy a spitfire! Best regards Eric Whitehead.

Barnsley Grammar School ~ 1947
This is my Grammar School photo of Form Remove 2 of October 1946. I'm not
at all sure of most of the names, by now, but I've tried to fill in as many
as I can, as follows:-
Here's the Barnsley Technical School photo taken December 1947 (I forget the
Form number). Again, most of the names escape me.
Bill Edgar ? Batty(?) ? ?
Tony Berry ? Adrian Bell (Wilthorpe)
? ? Roy Wilson Joh Mason ?
Hirst(?) Holden ? ? ?
? ? ? ? Frank Hook (from
master) ? ? ? George Sellers
Paddy Finlow ?
Adrian Bell lived near my Grandma's on Queensway, Wilthorpe.
George & Jimmy Sellers were well known twins (Jimmy must have been absent
that day) and they emigrated to Australia, soon after this photo.
Incidentally, other characters I recall from Wilthorpe were Roger Wainright
(Roland Road), Geoff Lewis (Queens Drive) and Peter Buttery (Queens Drive).
Another good friend was Stan Bulmer who
went on to become "Stan plus Stan2 Photography".
Both the above photographs were kindly supplied by Bill Edgar.
Kindly provided by Peter Dallas - below
If you are able to show these photos on your schooldays section that would be great. However I am not sure about the copyright situation with Parky's photo. It would be great if someone could name other people in my photo and maybe have some knowledge of my dad.
If you are interested I have a couple of other relevant photos. One is of John Street Council School, Wombwell taken in 1921 - again with my dad on it aged 10. Another is of my dad's cousin, Margaret E S Dallas who was a teacher at Barnsley Girls High School in the 40's or 50's. She died in 2004 in Liverpool.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Peter Dallas (now retired and living in Knaresborough)
1. Margaret Edwina Scott Dallas who never married. She was born in Wombwell in 1924 and died in Liverpool in 2004. She taught at Barnsley Girls High School, Greenhead High School, Huddersfield and Southport Girls High School. She was General Adviser & Inspector of Schools in Liverpool until she retired in 1984.
2. John Street Council School 1921. My dad, Joseph Eric Dallas, is on the second row down, third from the right. He was born in Wombwell in 1911 and died in 1986 in Pontefract.
My dad's brothers, Robert Washington Dallas 1906-1978, William Gordon Dallas 1909-1985, and Brian Scott Dallas 1914-1996 also went to Barnsley Grammar School.
I shall follow your website with interest. It is fascinating and there is so much on it that brings back memories.
No 1 - Miss Margaret Dallas
No 2 - John Street Council School, Wombwell 1921
This picture is of the teachers at Park Road Junior School, I think around 1960, for maybe some of you that went to that school. From left to right Miss Smith, Mrs Madsen?, Mr Hutchison (Headmaster) Miss Thatcher and Mr Hurst ~
