Here is a lovely photo of my mum, Irene Nichols, née Ridley, first girl top row standing next to the teacher.


Winns Avenue School - Prefects 1936

The pic shows all the Winns Avenue School Prefects, photo taken in 1936. Does anyone remember the name of the teacher? Or any of the girls?

Hello,
I was born in Chingford and lived in Walthamstow until 1956/1957. My parents and their parents lived in Walthamstow. Every thing on this website brings back many memories. I attended Winns Avenue Primary and Junior school. This picture was taken in 1952 when I would have been 6/7 years of age. Got this picture from my mothers possessions when she died a couple years ago. I am circled. Does anyone else recognise themselves?
I can remember some names like Royston Bull, John Ayers, Gladys Kirby, and a few others.
