Early 1920's

By Graham Moore

I came across this photo amongst my late mother's possessions. She was Daisy Christabel Staniforth and was born on Denton Island in 1913. She is standing 4th from the left. Does anyone know the names of the other pupils, the teacher and the school ?

Her parents were Ernest & Mabel. She had a sister Elsie who married Dick Saunders and 3 brothers - John George (Jack), Joe and Ernest (Nobby).

The picture is probably taken inside the Meeching/Newhaven Girls School Graham, which stood on the corner of Dacre Road and South Lane the site now is occupied by the multi-storey car park. 

I might add the classroom looks very much like the one I sat in 1952/3 being taught by Mr Parker ! which was then called the Meeching Junior School.
