Schoolday memories.


These two pictures have been published in recent weeks.

The top one brought back memories for one reader Kathleen Dixon, nee Brown, from Beadnell, who said it is of the Duchess’s School in Alnwick in 1950.

Mrs Dixon said it is about a quarter of a larger photograph of the school at the time and can name most of the girls pictured (see our website for a full list of names).

But we are still searching for information for the bottom picture. We’d love to hear from you.
