Did you go to school in Walthamstow? Want to see pictures?
Pictures and stories here!
This is the best I can do, one photo is Gamuel Road school and the others are Markhouse Road.
I do know many names but just do not know how to attach them to the photos.

This is my first contact with you. Found this photograph of the Markhouse Road team that won the 1st Division Schools Football Championship in the 1947-48 season. As far as my memory will allow the names are as follows:
Front row (left to right):
1 - Woods
2 - Moores
Second row (left to right):
1 - Blanks
2 - Stevens (Vice Capt.)
3 - Orchard (Capt.)
4 - Chapman
5 - Tebbs
Third row (left to right):
1 - Mr. Blumson (Sports Master)
2 - Sands
3 - Shakeshaft
4 - Lewis
5 - Wellhams
6 - Cooper
7 - Mr. Easton (Headmaster)
It was a privilege to be captain of this team and I wonder if anyone out there knows if there are any other members of this team still around.
Happy New Year & Regards
I have just been surfing the WM website and I see that there are a few gaps in photos for my old school Markhouse Road, so here are the ones I have on file plus a leaving letter for me from my form mistress Miss Townsend, I still have the letter in my reference files.

The Markhouse Drama Club (MDC) was based at the Mark House Secondary School
in Walthamstow, from 1955 to 1977, where it offered the local young people a wide range of
performing arts activities and experiences - along with a great deal of friendship and fun!
A new, 'non performing' Markhouse Drama Club, established and ran by its former members, maintains a website hosting a wide range of production, school and re-union memorabilia. The website also contains memorabilia from the performing arts activities that have been run and funded under the auspices of The Cyril Malyon Memorial Fund (CMMF) - a charitable, non-profit voluntary organisation, formed in 2013 in recognition of his leadership of the MDC throughout the above period.
If you were a member of the Markhouse Drama Club, or a pupil at the school during this period, you can find all the above memorabilia, and details of how to make contact with your former friends, on: www.markhousedramaclub.com
The MDC would welcome any photographs, programmes, scripts and other memorabilia from productions, or of the school, for use on the website. Here are some pictures:
