Like Stout and Trebor I also lived in So. Frederick St. although just ahead of them in time. We lived at no. 80. What were your addresses? We lived there from 1940 - 1964. I can remember most of the names of the people who lived in our block between Bertram Streeet and Gilbert Street. And NO, I was not named after the street.
I have fond memories of Barnes Road schools. Miss Richardson was the very strict Infants headmistress. She broke a ruler when hitting my hand.
In the juniors we had Miss Bell 1A,(Very gentle lady). Miss Foster 1B,(a bit more 'hard'). Miss Warren 2A (Friend of Miss Russell, both keen walkers), 2B & 3B were taken by Mr. Galley and Mr. Leslie (Can't remember which way round. Mr. Leslie was disliked for his punishment of lifting your 'short-trouser' leg and smacking the back of your thigh, hard.). Mr. Don Lawson 3A, (the football teacher),Mr. King 4A and Miss Russell 4B. Mr. Elliott was the Headmaster.
