My name is Roy Field, I have found this photograph in an old bible of mine.

I was a member of the choir late 40s early 50s and I lived at 3/37 Ruston Street, I left there about 1952.



I was just looking through this Bible, they gave one to all the kids at St Barnabas when the school was a hundred years old.

I thought you might be interested.

Best wishes  Ray.
