One of the 1950s' creative dance shows at George Salter Secondary Modern Girls' School

HAVING read and looked at the photographs in the books, published by Terry Price such as West Bromwich Memories, West Bromwich Recollections and West Bromwich Yesterdays, I viewed with interest at the photographs of George Salter Secondary Modern Girls' School which I attended during the 1950s.

I thought Bugle readers would be interested in this picture of one of the school's creative dance pieces in which I took part.

When I was younger I was very active in representing the school in many activities that included swimming, high diving, netball, athletics as well as creative dance.

I was the only person to partake in high diving while I was at the school. I also became the first school sports captain in 1953. Myself and my friend Sylvia Sutton were both very close to winning this award but I just beat her due to my high diving.

If there are any friends who have read those books they may have been mystified by the captions which called me Ivy Lissimore. If there are any old friends from the school I would love to hear from them.
