Kingsholme 1945/46 school photo - reverse

[This text constitutes the information on the reverse of the 1945/46 Kingsholme photograph and is presented 'as is' apart from formatting and written by Awyn Hawkes as he remembers things. Youy will note that many names are missing - please, anyone who has an interest can you add to those already shown?]

"This photo was taken on the play-ground to the rear of the school buildings which would have been behind and to the right of the photographer. Arundel Road (steep hill) would have been behind the trees on the right of the photo. I can’t recall the name of the road behind the high wall on the left of the photo.
