The west front (London Road entrance)

 

ANDREW Lamberton has borrowed some postcards of "Willaston School / St Joseph's

/ Bible College" from the Robin Gray Postcard Collection, thanks 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 is 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."
