THIS week we feature another photograph from former Ilkeston junior school teacher Norman Langley from his teaching days here half a century ago.

After seeing a photograph in Memory Lane last year, Mr Langley, 84, who taught at Granby Junior School in Heanor Road, submitted pictures from his time there from 1949 to 1955.

This picture was taken in 1953 and shows the school’s football team from that year.

Mr Langley, who now lives in Kent, later became headteacher of three schools and an inspector and adviser to two local education authorities.

He is currently writing his memoirs and would love to hear from former pupils.
