    as a child (born in 1940) we lived during the war at no. 40 charlton road and I began school at Victoria Park york road. I am writting my memories and trying to remember the price of school dinners etc. We left about 1947 to live in the ‘rookwoods’. How do I find your article about Victoria Park School? I’m in Australia now.
    p.s. I have a school photo of All Saints Primary in the 1920’s if anyone would like to see it.
