Hello Alex,

You must have been in Skelmorlie when I lived there, between 1942 and 1951. Did you attend the Skelmorlie Public School?

Memories, Nostalgia & History

History doesn't have to be in black & white

Your memory of a local character or a school photo from the last ten years can be just as interesting as wars and Victorians.
