I have contacted several ex SWHT pupils over the last year via FriendsReunited , I was recently informed that FR is closing down . Would it be possible to transfer photos to the Newham story
Site.

I wonder if you could try contacting the Newham Story Website at http://newhamstory.com and send them your photos.

Failing that if you send a personal message to Stan Dyson who has posted on the previous page of this topic I would think he would be interested.

Re teachers names.,

Mr Baxter was our Maths teacher.
Mr Abrahams our French teacher
Mr Dove our history teacher.
Mr Taylor our Art teacher.

But cannot remember any of the trade teachers IE Metal work, Wood work or Brick laying teachers or the English , Music teachers.

just of greengate street.

Hi Ron, thanks for your reply. I attended WHSB early in my apprenticship & all I can recall is bicycling on & around lots of debris & a few terraced houses just before WHSB on my way from Custom Hse.
The building with ground & upper floor was rectangular with an open balcony around the 4 sides of the upper floor, or am I fast approaching senility?

As an update to the Old School of Building I went to in '51 after attending Greengate Primary School I can confirm as my earlier post it was located in Queens Rd E13.

If you came over Carter Rd Bridge it was situated just to the right. On the corner was an Off Licence and next door was a Fish & Chip Shop.

This confirmation comes from West Ham Education , British History.  http://www.british-history.ac.uk/vch/essex/vol6/pp144-157  Under Elementary Schools founded between 1903 - 1945.   Extremely detailed tome of West Ham Education schools.
