    Cool Roscommon St School and St. Peters, Sackville St, Everton area.

    Anyone help me obtain pictures of these schools during the 1950's? I lived next to Rossy school at 79-81 Roscommon St and the back of our house led onto St Peters school which I attended in the 50's. Any help would be much appreciated. Regards to Ged, ItsaZappathing and others, just waking from my hibernation.

    Hello Chasevens.

    I went to both of those schools and during the 50's.

    Mr Grimshaw headmaster at Sackville St. Mr Walker one of the teachers who tought me.

    Roscommon St, headmaster Bothom, teachers, Hughes, (Woodwork) Bozie, (Woodwork also tought the lads boxing)
    Williams, (Music) Other teachers , Jack Lyons, Fred Tunstall, who went on to become the headmaster at Colomendy.
    I will post some pictures of both schools as soon as possible.

    Cheers!

    Hi Samp,
    Great to hear from and thanks for the early response. I went to St Peters but the headmaster at that time was Mr Stokes. I left in 1960 and my final form teacher was Mr Bookless. Mr Platt was the school caretaker and he lived a few houses down in Sackville St. My elder brother, Les Evans, went to Rossy, also my younger brother Ron but I went on to the Collegiate. I do recall Les recounting his experience of Bozie. Looking forward to seeing the pics,
    Regards,
    Chas

    Hello Chas, I remember Mr Stokes did take over from Grimshaw and I remember Mr Platt the caretaker, dont remember Bookless.
    I left Rossy in 1956. Did you ever go to the Shewsy club?

    Cool Shewsy

    Hi Samp, I was in touch with Mr Bookless's wife recently and she let me know he had died. She told me a little of his history and he'd been a prisoner of war held by the Japanese but he never brought any of this out in his lessons. A very quiet and calm man is how I remember him.
    I did go to the Shewsy, a great boys club. I played billiards and eventually played snooker upstairs. It kept us off the streets and was well run. I still think of the thick hot buttered toast which you could buy there for a penny a slice. I'm sure you know that I'm talking about when a pound was worth 240 pence. I'm 61 this year, how old are you?
    Speak to you soon,
    Chas

    Over a dozen gone on my site yesterday. Sackville st - 2 and 3 storey houses, also back Rossy as well as them undergoing demolition and the site afterwards. One looking towards the old Shewsy on Portland Place too as well as the rear of Rossy new school, the 50s and 60s flats and up towards Nethy and the high rise.

    Hi Ged,
    What year would this pic of Back Rossy be? St Peters is still standing and Rossy school but everywhere else has gone. Is there any chance your other pics will available to view?
    Regards,
    Chas

    Thumbs up Rossy pics

    Hi Ged and Samp,
    Found a couple of personal pics of my childhood in Rossy.

    1st pic shows me and my younger brother on a sunny day on the back of my dad's lorry which was partially to blame for the window ledges condition (see pic 3). Brickwork to the left is our house then the house next door. Third house is a bombed house.The fancy barriers are to deter us from gaining access to the bombed house.Then there is Joey Charnock's house with trees showing, and the final house on the block where a man called Len lived with his wife. Looking into the distance there are other buildings of the same era so this pic was taken before the high rises were built. Pic could be 1954-55. Samp's first pic shows a view from the front of these final three houses

    2nd pic is Joey Charnock who lived three doors away (his house had a garden!). He's standing in the doorway of St Peter's School yard with the upper railed yard behind him. The newly built high rise flats are visible in the background.

    3rd pic is taken at 79/81 Roscommon St where we lived. next to Rossy School. The window ledge has taken a bit of a hammering (explained in pic1).
    Cheers,
    Chas
