Welcome to my photo gallery
Ha - I've just "rediscovered" these pics after posting a comment on them back in 2003. Drop me a line in anyone wants to get in touch.
Ian, Gold Coast, Australia
These Photos are of the Upper School. I have a copy of the Lower School taken around the same time.
Was the brown cow pub on the corner and the bull pub was on the other corner
Mr Bottomley taught French very well and regaled us with amusing stories too. One of which was about French Taxis at the Arc de Triomph where numerous roads met. Many taxis had dents on the roof where the tarfic police had thumped them as they passed them, trying to hurry them onwards.Mr Bottomley had been a British Army translator in WW2 so his knowledge was better than most teachers of French. Thanks Brian Griffiths for this site.
Hey Brian - any chance of a higher resolution copy of this one by email? I tried downloading it, but it's not great quality.
Thanks... lots of chat going on about these pictures currently on the AOB site.
That's my dad. Keith Dovaston was my dad.
