Caption for Formby, Brows Lane C1960: This view is from the same spot as our last photograph, but roughly ten years later. The narrow road has gone, widened in the name of progress.

Who can remember Miss Dun? Can anybody remember the names of the 2 male teachers? I left the school in 1963, at 15. Hope to hear (...Read full memory)
