This is the first school that I attended, Saint Edmunds Infant School situated on Melbourne Avenue, Fleetwood. It's still there but has been extended.

Now we move on to my junior school. This is Saint Marys Junior School and was situated on London Street, Fleetwood. This photo is taken from Blakiston Street. The school has been demolished and a modern version now stands on the plot.

Finally the school where I learned about alcohol, tobacco, barbs and girls. This is Carndinal Allen Secondary Modern and is situated on Melbourne Avenue, Fleetwood. Yeah, next door to Saint Edmunds ! It's still there but is now much bigger. And the bike sheds have gone.

All the photos where taken c1963 by the late John Duckworth WW2 Spitfire pilot, motorcyclist, neighbour and my inspiration to get off my arse and use my camera. Eighty-eight when he died last May but as feisty as ever. R.I.P.

Martyn,

You can tell that top one's the infants' school, 'cos one of the kids has scribbled on the sky.

(Sorry...it's been that sort of day today.)

Heh heh heh...I reckon that one resulted in a large brown paper parcel tied up with string by hometime then.

My old school - Burn Naze - where i discovered having nits was a big issue. i just wanted to die or have green hair like the girl in the movie, anything but nits. Loved the school food and the milk coffee with the skin on top. The area around the back of the school was just fieldsand in the distance ICI
