Northern School Of Music (NSM)

This is one of the annual school photographs of the Northern School of Music! Taken in All Saints Gardens with the old L.E.A. School in the background (now MMU Library), we think it's taken in the late 1950s.
In the middle on the seated row is Ida Gertrude Carroll (1905-1995, student, secretary and then principal of the Northern School of Music), then to the right of her is Beatrice Rollins, Eileen Chadwick, Irene Wilde, Geoffrey Griffiths, Margaret Hughes. To the left of Carroll is Doris Euerby and Adelaide Trainor (who taught at the school's Speech and Drama Department).

Do you remember any of these people? Do you remember the school? Ever walk past the gardens and wonder what on earth a load of people were lining up for? Because it might have been this.
