Sunny Side - a Memory of Ivybridge.

My father was killed in the Malayan emergency and I was sent to live with my grandmother, Kezia Stedman, in Costly Street, Ivybridge.
I went to Sunnyside school. Sophie Harris was the lady who ran the school.
Then I attended Plympton Grammar, now Heles School, I believe.
I have seen photos of modern day Ivybridge and have no desire to revisit.
