Easterton School Children in 1934 – update
A Happy New Year to all our readers and in particular we send greetings today to the former Joy Sheppard who spent most of her life in Easterton but who now lives in Devizes.
Just two days ago we showed a picture of Easterton School Children in 1934 and we said we had a hunch about who one of the people was. Our hunch was correct and our known person was the above mentioned Joy. She has named all but one of the people on the picture.
Let’s refresh ourselves by seeing the picture again.
And now the outline sketch of the picture which numbers all of the people.
And here are the names of these people as supplied by Joy. She apologises for the name she can’t get and blames it on a blurred image. There’s always a chance that someone else will come up with the name.
|1||Miss E Thomas||Infant teacher – Welsh|
|2||Mrs Fowbell||not with us for very long|
|20||Alan Alexander||note the calipers|
|30||Ronald or Arthur Stokes|
Joy even provided a bit of extra information about families.3 and 19 are cousins 4 and 20 are brothers 6, 15, 22 and 29 are siblings 9 and 14 are siblings 23 and 24 are sisters 27 and 28 are brothers 17 and 30 are siblings.
Fantastic knowledge! Thanks very much, Joy.
