WITH 2013 looming large, we take a leap back in time almost exactly 60 years to 1953 and this snap of youngsters at the former Spring Street Junior School in Hucknall.
This photograph has been sent in by Joan Wass (nee Brown), of Florence Street, Hucknall, who can be seen fourth from the left on the front row.
It shows children in their final year at the school before moving up to Beardall Street Senior School.
Joan has even done an outstanding job of naming everyone else on the snap. They are:
