North Manchester Grammar School for boys

is the school I attended between 1964 and 1971. This week I received an email out of the blue from an old classmate, with a subject line “Doc Holliday” which initially confused me until I remembered that he was our Form master at 14 and also our Classics teacher. We studied both Latin and Ancient Greek in those days. The old classmate, Ian Gregson, suggested meeting for an hour to reminisce.

Ian was staying with another old contemporary, Steve Ormrod, and an hour in the cafe turned effortlessly into two hours as we caught up with more than forty years worth of past lives.

I took along some old photos from 1970, a shot on the front lawn of North Manchester and two football teams. Perhaps posting them here will help people recognise themselves or others. If you can name anyone I have missed, feel free to comment below and make good any omissions or errors. Apologies for any initial failings to put names to faces.
