Every week, I share an excerpt from my Great Aunt’s book, As the Story is Told: A History of Morpeth and Community, which was printed in 1986. This week is a 1951 photo from the Morpeth School. I am wondering where my dad and his siblings are? They would have been aged 5, 6 and 7. My great aunt, Helene Duck, was one of the teachers at that time.
