OUR sincere thanks go to Mrs Joy Humphries (nee Hill) of Cambourne Road, Rowley Regis, for supplying several pictures and other items from her Oldbury schooldays — and later working days at Accles and Pollock.
We kick off this week with the class photograph on the right, and will share more with you more over coming weeks.
This photograph shows Class 4A of Albright Girls School, in 1957.
