The St.Helens I remember from my youth. I was thirteen and a half when I took this (I have a very clear memory of taking this image).
The tireless Mr Dobbs music master conducts the school brass band on the balcony of the main hall at Cowley School.
He deserved a much better tenor horn player than I was that’s for sure.
Morning assembly saw all the pupils in the main hall for hymns, prayers and announcements. When the band didnt play the hymns were accompanied by piano from the front of the hall.
Some favourite Hymns:
There Is a Green Hill Far Away.
In the bleak mid Winter
