THIS picture was provided by Gail Livingston, who is trying to put names to the faces.

It was taken around 1930 and features the amateur dramatic club of the Lodge Clubs factory which used to be on St Peter’s Road. Gail’s sister Colleen McTurk can be seen on the right hand side on the front row and the only other known person is Ethel, who is fourth on the right in the middle row. Do you know the names of anyone pictured? If so, get in touch.

This second picture shows St Matthew’s Boys School in the 1920s. It was provided by Philip Robinson, who is trying to find out whether the after school science club was the first to receive 2LO radio signals in Rugby. Can you help?
