Hi Kisit49
      I hope you find your friend Linda Dowler. I can't recall Mr Hutchinson; perhaps he wasn't there when I attended the school. I left in1960, many moons ago, in another lifetime. Good Luck!

I really wish I did recall them, 'cos you're the first person I've come across from the number street area on the BF. I came from Fourth st. and the people from this area must be very shy. Hope your search bears results.

I have had a thought just come to me. I think there was some one called Noble who lived on Nth. Howard st. on the corner with Sixth st. The only name that seems to ring a bell is Pearl. This was in the early 1960's so don't rely too much on my memory. I don't....

Tobergill St  .knew Andrew Duff , think he went to the Boys' Model , then there was Big John King used to drive a sky blue morris 1000 estate ( face badly scarred from a crash), and the empty granny's house , of the two sisters that lived up in Highfield ( kiss kiss )
in the words of d'artagnan.  "Ad Unum Omnes "

I'm in late (very late) 60's and the girl Pearl would have been about my age.
It's very hard to catch up with anyone from that part of the world.
I left in 64 and didn't go back until 2001. The whole population has been scattered to the four corners. My sister still lives in Belfast and even the few people she has been able to keep in contact with don't know many more. I've been back three times since and have only met up with a handful of people. I just booked my next trip back to the UK last Friday and will be in Scotland at the end of July to visit my son and his family. Believe it or not he was born here in OZ, but has been living in Brechin for the last twelve years. After that I'll be heading for Belfast for 3 or 4 weeks. Maybe I'll be luckier this time. You never know.

By the way BG the nom de plume is SANDGROPER, Which is a blind worm ( quite large) that burrows into the sand here in West OZ. It is what people from the other states call West Australians. ...LOL...
