    Though it was after 1988 and 88 when I started we had Vandalism every week on Grange Hill's Scale of Window's being smashed as was so in Series 4 (and that was not even London) and 8 years later, so shows you how rough it was!!

    And I bet that as it was a drama, the glass was actually plastic for Health and Safety reasons. The glass in Mitchell's classroom in the "Golightly - let's consult the masterplan" episode of series 2 where Tucker tries to build a tower out of chairs in the room and breaks a window. If you look closely, the window pane looks as if it is made of plastic.

    It should be understood that working on the photos after the shoot takes a lot more time than the shoot itself. This is a time-consuming and complicated process that is left out of the customer's sight. I realized that a professional photographer's work doesn't just push a button and take pictures. Any photoshoot requires post-processing, primarily color correction. The quality of processing affects the result that the client receives in the end. A great expensive camera is not a guarantee of high-quality photos. One technique is not enough. Improper processing can nullify all benefits of professional equipment. A few filters are applied in the "artist's eye" style, and the photo is irretrievably ruined.

    My Senior (Secondary School). Salterbeck Secondary school, which later changed to Southfield Secondary School when we had several school mergers in 1984. The below photo was took shortly before its demolition a couple of years ago.

    Victoria Junior School. The school in the photo had to be demolished around 2000, as there was a pocket of methane gas under it (which despite the measured) couldn't be vented away. Out of the schools I went to, this was my favourite. Excellent teachers who were firm but fair.

    Re: pictures of your schools.

    With regards to the schools that I went to, just imagine a "run of the mill" building with an entrance at the front, and a sign with council or LEA logo and school name outside.

    in response to Amethyst's question about whether we think about former classmates, the answer is yes - I mentioned the fact that I was in touch with a former one in time for my 40th birthday, but decided that too much water had passed under the bridge over the years in order to get together - I decided to leave the past in the past where it belongs. And there was someone in my class who was killed just a few years ago, and since then I have thought of local journalists as being too speculative to be honest - this is why I never read local newspapers or watch or listen to local news.

    I have been thinking about my old school a lot from the age of 8 _11,I cannot remember much about the infants.I have tried to research my old school photos but nothing showed up,had a look at a few different sites but nothing and I thought the best option would be to contact the central library but seeing they are shut no joy there.There were 32 pupils in my class 16 boys 16 girls I was thinking about where each of us used to sit and who next to,curious indeed how many are still around how many have past I know one girl died 18 months ago.Does anyone else think about your class mates

    I just Googled it. What a striking and imposing building.

    I found one of my old school yearbooks. This picture was taken in either 1975 or 76.

    The primary I put the picture on was built in 1927. My secondary was Hamilton Grammar School if you fancied a look.

    Wow!
    The school where I work at the moment is celebrating its centenary this year but my own primary was built in about 1966 and my secondary a few years later.

    I need to take some pics of my old high school -- a complex of ugly concrete buildings with narrow gun slit windows that looks like a prison.
