Historic Maps of Boston Spa and the local area.

I was at St Josephs from 1952 until 1959, my name was Kathleen Mccoy i had 2 sisters with me Pauline Battles and Sheelagh Mccoy. I remember some names ,Theresa Thompson, Dorothy Wray , Roselyn Gallagher, Kathleen and Margaret Riley, to name a few. I was one of the youngest at that time in the home. It would be nice to know if anyone else was there with us.

Whilst my brother lived just down the road in St. Mary's boys home, Boston Spa.myself & 2 sisters lived in St. Joseph's catholic girls home. This was in the late 60's. I first went to the primary school in Clifford, St. Edwards I think. The headmaster was a Mr Haynes. Then I attended the John Fisher school in Harrogate. Does anyone know if St. Joseph's children's home in Boston Spa still exists? Glenda My surname was Hughes.
