ANDREW Lamberton has borrowed some postcards of "Willaston School / St Joseph's
/ Bible College" from the Robin Gray Postcard
to Robin's widow, Janet.
He then did a "quick recce" of the
1901 Census to see how many pupils there were then. He told me: "The answer
23 pupils with just two teachers (one being the
headmaster, Guy Lewis), a matron, three
housemaids, one kitchen maid, one cook, one waitress and one female
caretaker of the sanatorium that was opposite the school in London Road."
He added: "Sanatorium was a
fancy name in those days, I think, for a sick bay."
