Here’s a great addition to the canon of postwar class photos from Brownhills Central Boys School, posted by reader Malcolm Jemison last week – he thinks it’s from around 1962, and it sits well next to the photos from the same school a decade earlier sent in by Margaret Hampton – I’ve included them below for comparison.
The difference ten years made is marked, and I’d be interested in comments on that.
Malcolm had this to say about the class picture:
My class picture.
Brownhills Central School For Boys, about 1962 — with Malcolm Cooper, David Haynes, ? Craddock, Barry Craddock, Colin Dean, Charlie Fellows, Roger Deakin, Paul New, George ? (Podge), Richard Prior, Ivor Holmes, Ian ?, Michael Castree and Stan ?.
Malcolm helpfully pointed out his position in the lineup:
I must say this is one of the best, most relaxed school photos I’ve seen for a long time, and my thanks to Malcolm for sharing it. If you can help with any names or memories of this class or school, please do: either by commenting here, or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
