Hi all, Just need to pick people's brains, I'm looking for anyone who may remember an Isabella Pickering, she was Headmistress at the Frosterley junior mixed school from 1927 until most likely the 40s or 50s, although when she finished in the post I'm unsure. She died in 1955 and was buried at Frosterley, I do hope someone has some memories of her to share.

Still very much the same. The man riding on the bike is Dickie Slater.
