Girl's Finishing School

In the early 1960 I attended a girls school of the most pleasant times of my childhood. Of course, the surround areas were enchanting and quite amazing for a young person from the Bahama Islands. I plan to visit again in the next year or two. The gardens were struggling while I was there, but the topiaries were magnificent.

Browning's Garage

This looks like it was taken from Browning's Garage. Up until the 1980s there were two motorcoach companies in Box, George Browning's at the corner of Devizes Road and Chapel Lane, and Millers on the High Street at the bottom of Chapel Lane. Browning's provided the school bus for Corsham comp when I was an 'inmate'. Now I see the garage site is a housing development called 'The Brownings'.
