This page will take a minute or two to download as there are a lot of largish photographs on it.
Please be patient.

Having said that, I have in fact compressed these photos to get them to download in a reasonable time, which means that, although they look fine on your screen, they will not print too well. If you want a larger, (better quality,) file to print from please email me at update "at"

Some of these are current, and the inlay shots from school days are mostly taken from the school photograph of 1959. (But I couldn't find Dick Meades - I still expect him to have his beard and moustache on.)

If you have any questions, or information, please email me at update "at"

A Preston Manor school outing.

When? Rita Sullivan (née Morgan) "......the possible date of the photo, it would have been 1961 or more likely 1962 as you all look older and taller than I remember and I left in 1960."

Where were we going? Chris Barrow (née Barrow) "We went to see the Temperance Seven at the Clay Pigeon at Eastcote."

Mike Donovan (née Donovan) "I recall seeing the Temperance Seven, but the Clay Pigeon at Eastcote had disappeared from by consciousness, although I can remember the place now. Also, all three cars must have got there OK."

So, 2 questions remain (apart from "Who remembers Captain Cephus Howard").

Who is the guy next to Dick Meades?

'What happened to your bowler hat', John?
I remember it turning up to a number of parties

Terry Chisman.

Then, aged about 17 I would guess.

Now, age not disclosed (but the same age as you if you are from Preston Manor) at work on my farm in my retirement.

Finally, with Liz and our daughter Vicki, as Liz would like me to be more often. (This one consigned to the "Fat Chance" file.)
