Hello Ken, You might find the links below helpful if you copy and past the into your browser.

Both links are to Ordnance Survey maps. The first shows the West Ham Country School of Building by name.
In the second link, the building has been renamed the Lister County Technical School but it is probably a better map for helping you get your bearings.

Hi Mick

I agree with you. It is almost certainly Kennard Street in the foreground. If you look carefully you can just make out St marks spire in the middle distance.

Ken, According to my Google research, it was located in the former Russell Central School in Queens Road, which used to be directly opposite Carter Road Bridge.

Ed, I have been trying to identify the location looking at old Ordnance survey maps. Striking visual landmarks are what appears to be a school in the foreground and the road layout. The only place I can identify as meeting this criteria is Kennard St. That would make the road immediately in front of the camera to be Newland Street. If that proves to be correct, then the long road on the right running alongside the dock wall would be Drew Road.

Hi, I remember attending West Ham School of Building, not sure of the year but it must have been early 50s.
Not sure why, but I  was then transfered to East Ham Tech in Arragon .
I cant even remember where it was, can anybody fill me in with some info?
Kenm.

Mick ,
      Iv'e seen these photos a few times , and have to say I think the dates a mixed up , the bottom photo I would say is Nth Woolwich taken from one of the new Blocks of flats named after Shipping lines one of which was Shaw house after Shaw Savills I remember these being built , so that this leaves us with the Silvertown one much earlier before my time , could be Vic Dock rd or Albert Rd or Nth Woolwich rd , over to you Mick   
 All the best Ed

Ron, My sincerest apologies for not wishing you happy birthday, it certainly was not deliberate, that is simply not my way. The only thing I can assume is I saw your message, filed in away in my mind as something to do later amidst probably many other things I might have been doing at the time and simply forgot to get back to you. I don't know what else to say other than play the age/memory card.

Once again Ron, my deepest apologies.
