Traffic Street School, Derby

Wendy54's memory of 1st December 1959 - 31st December 1962

I lived in Canal Street, Derby in the early 1960's Does anyone else remember Traffic Street School at this time? I went to Traffic Street School with my brother, Stephen. We left Derby for South Africa in December 1962. I belonged to the Brownies and we held our meetings in the Queens Hall Church. At my last meeting the letters "Cape Town" were spelt out in our collection money. I also remember attending the Harvest Festival at the Queens Hall Church at Harvest time. Does anyone else remember these events? I was 8 years old in 1962. My older sister attended the Joseph Wright School of Art.
