Comment from Delcia Appleby
That was taken in Rose Street, you can see what was the old Shirt Factory on the left hand side.
I see that Even Swindon old school has just had a massive fire, rather tragic.
I believe the lady on the left is in fact Ruth Small from Percy street
That’s my nan :), Beryl. The surname would of been Small at the time this was taken.
According to Beryl, after the police incident was reported in the paper, Merv Hiscock (my grandad) found out Beryl’s true age!
Beryl made herself out as being older than she really was at the time!
Phil Jones is my mother we lived @ 17 Rose Street
