Ogley hay Juniors in the late 60s: Who can you spot?

I’m indebted today to local lady Gail Hughes who posted this wonderful pair of Ogley Juniors photos  – the upper one appears to be from the annual May Day event in 1965 (which has featured here many times before from different years) – and Gail thinks the class photo is from around 1969.

I always love these images as they look so relaxed and happy, not the traditionally stiff school photos we normally see. It always strikes me how content the kids were in the pictures from the various Ogley Schools, like the kids were in the Portman Collection of Walsall Wood school photos we also chronicled and shared here.

Another photo must have been taken because a lot missing from my year.

Happy Days!

Thanks to Gail for a gorgeous pair of images that are bound to be very popular indeed.
