Portsmouth Baby Boomers who would become teenagers of the ’60s | Nostalgia
Not one sad face among these pupils from Corpus Christi School in Gladys Avenue, North End, Portsmouth.
Malcolm Jones sent me this photograph plus some names of those pictured, but not in any order.
They are: David Walsh, Malcolm Jones, Keith Hewitt, David Dobbin, Michael Brown, Carol Brown, Andrew Jones, Michael Jones, and Malcolm Walsh. Also possibly Rachel Dobbin.
Malcolm says it was taken before 1955 so most would have been born after the end of the war, to become known as Baby Boomers and teenagers of the 1960s.
They were of an age of rock ’n' roll but they would be part of the beat boom 10 years later when The Beatles and the sound of Liverpool ruled the airwaves.
• I am hoping some you senior readers from Milton can assist me with this postcard scene. All there is on the postcard is a caption which says it shows Milton Creek. I know little about the location.
There are wharves either side of the inlet along with several cranes and perhaps warehouses on the right as well. The cottage on the left might be of some relevance to someone.
