I lived at 240 Mowbary Road on the corner with Kingsway just under the train tunnel. I went to Mowbary Road School from about 1960 to 64. I remember the Headmaster was Mr. Elliot I think. I also remember getting nits from a classmate and having to get my long hair cut short. I have a school pic somewhere, I'll dig it out and post it.

Thank you so much for the pictures, it was awsome to see my old house where I grew up. and sad to see the old school pulled down. I really appreciate you taking the time and effort in taking the pics and posting them. It made my day, especially after a not so good day at work.
Your name does not do you justice, it should be Mr. made Cushy happy.
