"A very warm welcome to our site ------I am sure that you will enjoy the memories of St.Ann's Well Rd prior to it's demolition in circa. 1970. I lived on Edwin St- I was born there (well City Hospital) in 1941 at number 47 facing the Board school wall. Our neighbours were the Goughs (Maggie Gough & Johnnie) and the Vincent family on the other side. We later moved to 284 St.Ann's Well Rd facing the Board school my Dad had the Sewing Machine Shop. I also went to the St. Ann's Infant's & Junior School and later to Morley and left school at the age of 15. So good to hear you speaking so fondly of Nellie Hayes the headmistress for so many years.... 101 years of age..amazing....if you check out our site files & photographs, you will see that she is recognised as one of our site's "Unsung Heroes" originally nominated by our Gina, who like your good self and no doubt hundreds of other St. Ann's children, held in such high esteem.....she was indeed a marvellous lady. I feel very strongly and one of the main reasons that I started the site a couple of years ago, is that these St.Ann's folk should be recognised, and never to be forgotten.... for the tremendous hard & good work that they did for us all, and the personnel sacrifices they must have endured for our generation. Enjoy the memories ....Best Wishes Tony."
