This is an old photograph taken in the playground of Beardall Street Infants School in 1955 during the May Queen festivities. It was sent to us by Sheila Shaw (nee Tasker) who is pictured second from the left (with her eyes shut).

“As you can see, we were scattering petals from small baskets,” remembers Sheila. “At the side of me, with her head down, is Sharon Derbyshire, the first girl on the right is Jeanette Randle (with the plaits). I don’t remember who the others are.”
