Not Brentford

Chiswick County School for Girls, 1957

Simon Holloway has sent several photos from the lives of Wilfred and Evelyn Chapple of Walnut Tree Road, Brentford.

This shows Eileen Chapple and schoolfriends in the summer of 1957 when they were at the Chiswick County School for Girls, which opened in 1916 in Burlington Lane.

Simons adds 'I have several more similar group shots': so please get in touch if of interest.

Front row: Jean MacKinnon, Eileen Chapple

Thanks to Jim Lawes for adding Jean MacKinnon's name; he adds her married name was Jean Nicholls. She left School to work at London Transport's offices at Chiswick and St. James' Park HQ. We teenagers at Chiswick Boys' School next door used to spot her playing in the School orchard. Many of us now in our 80's would like to know how she is these days!

If you know what happened to Jean please get in touch.
