Welcome to the Guestbook
Feel free to add messages relating to the site and the school. The only rules are: real names only, no personal attacks and no unrelated messages (inappropriate messages may be edited/withdrawn without warning).
It would be appreciated if you gave an email address, where you now live and said when you were at the school, but you don't have to.
Plase note that if you click on an email address below you will need to replace ~DOT~ with . and ~AT~ with @ in your email program. The Guestbook presents these this way to avoid email address harvesters collecting your email addresses from the page. I know it's a pain, but it's very much better than the alternative.

a very interesting post and sorry for your problems but glad it turned out well.
I was interested in your being interviewed about the Holborns. Was this in response to your previous post asking about anyone else attending the school from there? To my chagrin, until I saw your original post I had never heard of the Holborns let alone knew where they were! This despite the fact that my dad was foreman electrician in the Middle Docks and worked there from 1936 until 1978, my cousin worked there until they closed and I worked there in my vacations from 1963 to 1966 and must have passed the area umpteen times! So thank you for enlightening me and broadening my knowledge.
Was I alone in my ignorance of town geography or did others share my lack, I wonder?
One thing I did was to look at the area on Google Streetview to see if I recognised it, but sadly not. I seem to remember that there was a school, near the Middle Docks entrance, for the Lebanese population, is that right?
