I remember Harry Sharratt bringing the FA amateur cup to school to show off to the dinner ladies. I also remember him threatening to hit one of my classmates, who stood up and invited him to try. Mr Sharratt thought the better of it.

I drove past the former Braimwood school the other week and the 'new' modular Roundhay Primary appears completed.

Whilst the new school seems much smaller than what was there before, I was surprised to see that the car park has expanded massively taking over the entire football pitch at the front of the school on top of the existing space.

That's an interesting note raveydavey about the car park. I amazes me to see large car parks at schools, such as that at Allerton High School, Alwoodley. There are normally a lot of cars there and unless there is a much larger number of staff than I would imagine then the conclusion is that many students use a car. When I was in the 6th form at a school in the very early 1960s one or two pupils had a motor bike but using a car would have been unbelievable. Times sure have changed! Tongue

On the Ice Cream thread PaulB mentioned a Peter Daly who went to St. Michael's in the mid 40's. the name rings a bell, but I can't quite place a face. I started in September 1943 in 1B and moved up to 1A after Christmas. The ''g' in peterg stands for Gilboy. Are any of that group still alive?

My brother Peter Daly is no longer with us but I went to Mt. St. Marys Richmond Hill and there was a Gilboy in our class, John I think, any relation, he also lived on fhe Gipton Estate.

The few pics I did have are lost over the many years of my family now moving around.

I thought they had turned that into trendy student flats.It's opposite a place called 'Charlie Cake Park' would love to know where that came from. Not dissimilar, Ian - but deffo not WLBH! This is what it used to look like:Can't find any info about the origin of Charley Cake Park, but we used to tease the tramps in there after school! :-OHere's an old photo of it, taken from the school - reet posh eh? :-)



West Leeds High school was not opposite Charlie Cake Park. And this image is nowhere near where you think, lol.
Young 'uns that have no interest in the history of the place they grew up in....disgraceful.
