Pupil power; all our yesterdays HILLHOUSE in the 1950s.

NOT long after these pictures were taken, Hillhouse merged with Huddersfield College, New North Road, to form Huddersfield New College.

But the Hillhouse lads obviously had a great pride in their appearance and their school.

In the formal picture below, Bryan Rothwell remembers most of the surnames.

From back left, they are: Metcalfe, Porter, Hardcastle,

Drescher, Early, Pugh, Tucker, Cunnington, (John) Robinson, Lodge, Smith, Brogan; (middle row): (Bryan) Rothwell, Booth, (Geoffrey) Firth, ?, Pratt, Slee, Norman, Jessop, Longbottom, Hinchliffe, (Roger) Pickersgill; and a litte confusion on the front row, with one name missing: Roberts, Atkinson, Kergon, Ralph, Readshaw, Fletcher, Vollett and (David) Hirst..
